Travis Tausend Description

I see winemaking as an art. The wines that I make have emotion, intuition and energy that has flowed through me at the time of making them. For this reason, the wines will always be different, not only  due to vintage variations from year to year, but also the changes and growth within me as a winemaker and person. I hope you find as much pleasure in drinking them as I do in the making. 

I am intrigued by the history of the land, the environmental flow, the cultural resonance and the spiritual weight that  weave a narrative into the vineyard. With that history comes a responsibility to care for the land, allowing future generations to find it in better condition than when we found it. 

I keep this in mind when managing the land and have a desire to learn more from the traditional and rightful  custodians of this place, the Peramangk people. Immersing ourselves in an intimate history of our place can only help shape a unique understanding of our responsibility as carers for this land. This deep knowledge and knowing of place will help to inform how I tell this story through the medium of wine.  

My history as a winemaker is short in practice but vast in learning and shaping of ideas. I have been involved in natural wine in some way since 2005. I have been moulding my opinion, my palate, perspective and an understanding of what makes me smile when I taste a wine. I bring all of that to every decision that is made in the making of these wines. 

I dearly hope that when the  wines are opened they are surrounded by good humour, great conversation and fun. After all, that is what they are there for. 

Wine Notes: The fruit is from the southern part of the Magpie Springs vineyard on a steep south westerly slope. The soils are clay and sand stone based with quartz and ironstone deposits giving the wine a richness and power that i really like.

The fruit is direct pressed into barrel and tank for fermentation and left on full lees for elevage. The components are then blended together right before bottling.
