PRODUCER: Lo-Fi is a partnership between two lifelong friends who believe in hand crafted honest wines that are made for every day drinking. Wines to be enjoyed not to be collected. Easy drinking lower alcohol wines made to pair well with all types of foods, from pizza to paté.
They believe in neutral barrels, native yeasts, little to no sulphur additions, and no adjustment of pH. They love whole cluster fermentation and adore carbonic maceration. Embracing a nothing added, nothing taken away philosophy that gives birth to wines that are young, vibrant and alive.
But in all reality Lo-Fi is less about what it is and more about what it is not. It is not over manipulated. It is not over extracted. It is not over ripe and it is not over priced.
WINEMAKING: Hand harvested and organically grown; 100% de-stemmed. Pumped over once daily. No sulphur used at harvest. Fermented on the native yeasts, followed by full malolactic by naturally occurring bacteria. The wine was fermented for two weeks then pressed to tank, settled, then racked to barrel the following day. Total of 25 ppm so2 added without filtration in keeping with our minimalist (lo-fi) philosophy.
TASTING NOTE: Lovely dark fruits like cherries and blueberries! Good weight on the palate but still agile – fresh berry fruit with herbaceous notes of oregano and pepper.
