Jean Bouteille 'Machina' Tempranillo 2021
Tempranillo from the majestic amphitheater vineyard in Hope Forest, Adelaide Hills. This beautiful North-East facing, sloped vineyard is farmed organically by David Gartelmann. The vines there thrive on a mixture of clay, alluvial rocks & sand.
The grapes are hand-picked & carbonically macerated for a week, then crushed and left for a day and pressed the following morning. The juice is then reductively fermented in stainless and barriques.
Bottled without sulphites/fining/filtration : Pur Jus Wine
About Jean Bouteille Wines
After years working around the world making wine, beer, sake & farming, Jean-Baptiste Courdesses built a winery in Basket Range, South Australia.
Jean Bouteille wines are crafted exclusively from organically grown grapes, focused on regenerative practice and made without any additions, fining or filtration, only grape juice: Pur Jus Wines.
The wines reflect the place and the character of the grape varieties that come from farming respectful of the environment, fauna and flora.
These wines are made with intuitive reaction and natural instinctive decisions. This playful series of wine comes from the love exploring scents, tastes and experiences to be shared.
