Borachio Chardonnay 2020
Mark & Alicia traded in the big city life in Sydney to move down to the Adelaide Hills where they worked under natural wine icon, James Erskine of Jauma. It wasn't long before they started producing their own stuff and every year we are astounded at how much they progress.
Notes from Team Borachio:
Whole bunch pressed, fermented to nearly dry, then to barrel for a rest.
Fond of sand dunes and salty air, quaint little villages here and there? If you’ve been to Mungo Brush on the NSW coast you might picture massive dunes and remember ripping the trucks of a skateboard deck to slide down the monsters. I guess I’d seen people do it with ‘for sale’ signs and assumed my classic Powell Peralta deck would do the trick. It didn’t. Copped a face full of sand. Textural and memorable. Hey, how about that view?!
