2022 Jumping Juice Haggis13523
WINEMAKER: Patrick Sullivan & Xavier Goodridge
REGION: Gippsland, VIC
VARIETAL: Field Blend
HAGGIS IS BACK. We don't really know what's going on in here, Pat doesn't like to give away much... Could be some gris, gewürz, cab franc, maybe pinot... We do know it's a super delicious delicious skinsy thing that punches well above its weight. Texture, intrigue, loads of fun. Pretty and plush this year.
Both Patrick and Xavier consider themselves ‘vineyard’ guys before winemakers, and they wanted the exchange between winemaker and farmer to be at the heart of Jumping Juice. It manifests in honest farming, with a deep respect for the nuances and rhythms of the site, along with the ongoing quest for inherent drinkability that the duo consider a central tenet in their wines. Above all, Jumping Juice is a prompt to embrace life; simply to be delicious and to act as a catalyst for carousing with the fine folks with whom you surround yourself.
