Mt. Midoriyama Chevaucher L'Eclair 2020
Sparkling Red-White Blend
Made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier
Faithful to the Mt. Midoriyama series, this is another fun and delighful pet-nat that is perfect with indulgent chips and 80s jams. This one is particularly peachy and yeasty.
The gents at Konpira put it much more artfully though, and we'll let them take it away:
But the Phoenix can fly only when its feathers are grown.
The four worlds formed again and yet again,
As endless aeons wheeled and passed.
Time and the pure essences of Heaven,
The moistures of the Earth,
And the powers of the Sun and the Moon
All worked upon a certain rock - old as Creation,
And it magically became fertile.
That first egg was named Thought,
Tathagata Buddha, the Father Buddha,
Said, 'With our thoughts we make the world.'
Elemental forces caused the egg to hatch,
from it then came a stone Monkey.
The nature of Monkey was irrepressible!
About the Producer
Konpira Maru was born in 2014 between two lads having a pint at the pub.
Sam Cook and Alastair Reed were both working in the wine industry in different capacities for several years, yearning for a creative outlet. Sharing a similar philosophy on viticulture and winemaking, and combined with beer-drinking values, they set out to create interesting wines with minimal intervention and maximum care - with a focus on affordability and high-drinkability.
With the aim of sourcing fruit from unknown vineyards across Australia, there are zero boundaries at Konpira Maru - whether that's with winemaking, blending or naming the wines themselves.
