La Petite Mort VMR Qvevri 2019

La Petite Mort V.M.R. – whole berries of Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne fermented in terra cotta amphora for 161 days – skins and all!! This “amber wine” (aka orange – but not to be confused with wine from Orange) is definitely something out of the ordinary. The Viognier gives fruit and perfume while the Marsanne lends it’s waxy texture and the Roussanne gives a hint of savouriness. This wine is bottled un-fined and un-filtered so a little bit of sediment is both likely and intentional.

The Winery

La Petite Mort is the black sheep of the Bent Road Wine family which hale from Ballandean on the Granite Belt, Queensland. Purchased in 2000 by the current proprietors/wine maker, the property encompasses 40 hectares of vines, winery, wilderness and granite boulders along a kilometre of frontage onto the pristine Severn River. Perched on the western reaches of the Great Dividing Range at an altitude of over 750m, many people are surprised to discover that our climate is both cool and continental – in fact, Ballandean is one of the coolest growing regions in Australia. This cool climate (and possibly our taste for European wines) lend subtlety and elegance to our wines, often expressing spicy, savoury notes and generally lower alcohol than some of our broader ‘Southern Sisters’.

Our absurdly picturesque setting plays host not only to great wine, but an abundance of other cultural indulgences and a great many guests! Whilst we don’t operate a cellar door because we split our time between the ‘Dean and Bris-angeles, we are always thrilled to receive guests when we are at home on the ‘farm’ and as a household full of consummate foodies, cooks and even a chef there is always something delicious on the hob!
