Domenica

"Domenica sits 460m above sea level atop the granite ridge sweeping away to the south west of Beechworth. The wines are vividly reflective of their origin, a gripping mineral texture encasing the mature vine vitality of the varietals chosen to express it. Winemaking is traditional. Taste is more important than numbers. The yeasts comes from the site, not a packet. Pressings, solids and lees all play their part completing the picture. The wines are carefully maintained in oak bariques before being bottled unfiltered." - Domenica

"Domenica Wines is the reincarnation of the previous Ergo Sum joint venture between Rick Kinzbrunner, Michel Chapoutier and Peter Graham. Domenica was established in 2012 when Peter Graham purchased the shares of Kinzbrunner and Chapoutier, and he is now the sole owner and winemaker of the business. He has had 15 years winemaking in Beechworth, and in particular worked both growing and making the wines from the (now) Domenica vineyard since it first produced fruit. Shiraz, roussanne and marsanne are considered by Peter Graham to have a natural affinity with the warm, dry summers, granitic soils, slopes and altitude provided by Beechworth. Beechworth's two major varieties are shiraz and chardonnay, and these are cornerstones for Domenica Wines." - James Halliday
