"This wine is named after my Mum. A ripper home cook, avid gardener, artist and a beautiful gentle soul. A premium vineyard blend. Fermented in a mixture of terracotta huevo and old oak and thoughtfully blended. On the surface a wildly fun drop but dig a bit deeper its a layered complex whimsical wine. I recommend to only slightly chill so not to miss the lifted aromas. Everyone will see different primary fruit notes here. Super fresh, clean and vibrant! The palate is so supple the tannins seem represented by the softest of silk. Bloody yum… That’s all I got the rest is for you to discover. Love ya Mum!" - James
