A special, rare back-vintage release of 100% Savagnin from the Mount Compass area, a very sandy-soiled site with relatively high rainfall. Winemaker Mark Warner says the site is frequently conflated with the McLaren Vale but has a cooler and more coastal feel. Whole-cluster pressed, fermented in stainless steel, then moved to various old barrels for around six months of rest. Another homage from Borachio to the limestone-y Jura, but viewed through the salty, cool lens of this pocket of the Adelaide Hills. Elegant. Their notes: “For whatever reason I’ve always been drawn to the salty side of life, maybe growing up on a peninsula, being naughty kids hooning around in tinnies, going fishing, getting as much hot chips as you had loose change, ripping oysters of the rocks... yeah, makes perfect sense when I write it down.”
