Tasting Notes

A delicious, drinkable Mourvèdre made by Gilles Lapalus in Victoria. Handpicked and wild fermented as 100% whole bunches, unoaked, unfined, unfiltered. Originally from Burgundy, Lapalus moved to Victoria in 2001 working to develop Sutton Grange. The Bertrand Bespoke range are artisanal, fun wines to drink now. Grapes are sourced from neighborhood vineyards and the wines are made with minimal addition, low intervention, and with respect to the environment and time.
