Allevare is the latest addition to our Australian portfolio and is run by partners Lucy and Alysha, who are based in Gippsland, Victoria. Lucy has a Masters of Oenology and Viticulture, and has done vintages across France, Chile and Australia, and Alysha, with a background in floristry, has joined her in business and also works for William Downie Wines. Together, they run Allevare wines, meaning 'to raise or nurture', where they are making wines with organic fruit sourced from vineyards across Victoria.
This Moscato Giallo is from the Chalmers vineyard in Heathcote (same vineyard as Momento Mori), but the wine has seen only a partial skin-ferment, giving the wine great texture but remaining as pure and varietally-expressive as a white wine can be.
Organically grown, hand harvested, wild fermented (50% skin-fermented), unadjusted, unfiltered, unfined. Minimal sulphites added at bottling.
