A wine that truly matches the label art - This is Show Pony

Notes:
Wild strawberry - Sherbet - Jalapeño margarita.
White Cabernet, Direct Pressed Pinot Grigio with just enough Sangiovese to blush its cheeks.
On the nose, herbaceous and musky leading to some kinda subtle boiled lolly vibe. Acid is a driver here, minerality for days. That Jalepeno vibe at the end makes me wanna smash 8 or 9 fish tacos. Wildy refreshing.
This one screams for some sunshine, some friends and some tumblers. Salud!
--- notes by Borachio:

Previous iterations have been either rosé or pseudo rosé. This time we’re firmly in the light/chilled red/park wine zone. Crunchy, Cloudy, Bright red fun time wine. Lots of things going on, but for me to rattle them all off would be missing the point. Chill it down, roll out the rug… GO!

labor practices – from Mark: For vineyard work, be it picking or or growing season work, we use contractors. The contractors we use are paid on an hourly award wage. We tend to stick with one crew, to keep them in work and to build a stronger relationship. They are independent operators, with a lot of the team being made up of family members.
Through the year if we need help with bottling, we pay above award wage and supply food and what we consider a ‘nice vibe’.
The award wage is set by the South Australian Government.
For the wine industry specifically, award wages can be found here -

Through vintage/bottling we are always checking in to make sure people are comfortable and happy. As someone who has fucked their body for someone else, we don’t allow risky behaviour and safety is paramount. For the vintage crew, Alicia is our mental health officer - she’s the best.
There is always room for improvement and we are constantly questioning our practices and trying to do better.
People are paramount, yes when things are tough, we all fuck up, but owning it and being better is our aim.
