The Deichmann boys have a wide range of musical interests, and they all come to fruition at harvest. During their first vintage the album that saw the most play was Tool’s second album, Ænima. Uffe’s favorite song from this masterpiece is ‘Jimmy’ and thus this wine was born out of a love for that song and a lyric adorns its label. The wine that saw the most playtime during harvest was Domaine Tempier rosé. Thus it was fitting that the culmination of these two extraordinary things would converge in this Bandol-inspired rosé. This wine comes from one of the first vineyards the boys have worked with, the Paeroa Vineyard in the Whites Valley of McLaren Vale. Here the organically-farmed, 25-year-old, bushvine Mourvèdre sits on the top of the hillside with the ocean in the distance.
The fruit was hand-harvested and whole-bunch pressed immediately at the winery to a single black concrete egg. Fermentation occurred without any additions and after five months of aging on the gross lees, the wine was bottled directly from tank and bottled without fining or filtration and with just a small addition of sulfur.
