Over a few beers three Marlborough winemakers decided that wanted a change from the norm. They decided to team up for a side project that would let them branch out into the natural wine world. Keeping their identities secret, Vandal was born.
Gonzo Militia is Vandal's interesting little field blend. It's a secret mix of chardonnay, pinot gris, viognier, pinot noir, syrah, riesling and tempranillo. The grapes were harvested and destemmed on the same day before having 24hrs of 100% skin ferment. Then it was into french oak barrels for 6 motnhs on full lees.
Jump it, give it a whril, you won't be dissapointed with this one!
This is a natural wine - don't be worried if there is a bit of sediment at the bottom or if it's bit cloudy, that's how it's supposed to be!
Lovely light and dry body, with a floral lift. Ripe nashi pear flavours and light minerality.
