2019 GRÜNER VELTLINER – Experimental Wine

Handmade – Natural Wild Yeast Ferment – Cool Barrel Fermented – No Acid or Enzymes Added – Barrel Aged on Lees

Vineyard –  Antonello Vineyard, Alpine Valley.

The final of our experimental wines for 2019 is a Gruner Veltliner. This fruit was sourced from brothers Stef and Peter Antonello, they planted their vineyard at Buffalo River in 1992. Although a majority of their vineyard is planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Prosecco they also have some smaller plantings of alternative varieties such as this Gruner Veltliner which was planted in 2014. This wine is experimental for us in that we knew very little about the variety and decided to ferment it in French Oak barrels as opposed to stainless steel which is common practice in its native Austria.

Once in the winery the fruit was gently pressed to a couple of 5 year old French oak puncheons and naturally fermented slow and cool. Oak of this age will impart very little, if any oak characteristics, instead we believe they are the best vessel for wines to ferment and age in. Oak is a natural product that allows the wines to breath and evolve with time, something not possible with stainless steel tanks. Given the wine was fermented and aged in small vessels on its lees it is a more textural Gruner Veltliner than most. The wine was then matured for 10 months of full lees with no stirring before light filtration and hand bottling at our winery. Vegan Friendly


Nomads Garden is an experimental wine label born out of the pristine landscape and viticultural diversity of our home in the Alpine mountains of North East Victoria. All our wines are single vineyard and handmade with low intervention in the winery, this means wines we:

·         Only use the naturally occurring wild yeast indigenous to the vineyard of origin.

·         Never add acid to our wines.

·         Minimal fining agents are added to our wines. (only the the natural clay product bentonite is used to stabilize our whites)

Instead we let the brilliant fruit we have access to from the five distinct recognized wine regions (King Valley, Alpine Valleys, Beechworth, Rutherglen & Glenrowan) that make up North East Victoria (Truly a nomadic winemakers dream garden) shine through. These are wines that naturally reflect the year the grapes were grown and the beguiling land of which they were conceived.

These wines are intentionally not labelled or marketed as Natural Wines although the ethos in which they are made is very similar, we believe the term “Natural” is far to ambiguous with no set guidelines dictating what exactly a natural wine is. Instead we feel the term Low Intervention is a far better description of what we are doing with Nomads Garden, creating wines by hand with minimal additives and a simple winemaking process that is transparently labelled on the back of the bottle. We expect these wines to stand up to conventionally made wines; low intervention to us is not an excuse for faulty or poor quality wine.
