We’ve always thought of the La Petite Vanguard as being our example of a Bistro style wine – the experimental sibling to Vanguardist. Youthful & vibrant, with great drinkability, enhanced by layers of complexity from thoughtful use of solids, skin contact, oak and other vessels.

With the Rende and Yangarra vineyards situated within a few hundred meters of each other, in the sands of Blewitt Springs, they shared a very similar weather pattern. An ideal season was granted by mother nature, with the required sun/rain ratios providing some relief to the vines after a number of years asking for the varieties to showcase their resilience.

The final wine is a 60/40 blend of Grenache & Mourvèdre. They were fermented separately, with the blend comprising approximately 40% whole bunch. Post blending in winter, elevage took place in a new french oak 22HL cuve for approx 6 months before the final wine sent to bottle without fining or filtration.

Our notes

The cool yet sunny spot brings this sweet, high-toned, almost sun-kissed alpine expression. Red berries, blue fruits. Cool mountain mists brushing wild herbs. Stone dust against flower petals and fine, present tannin. This is energetic and balanced straight out of the bottle and develops beautifully with some air. Enjoy now or again and again over a handful of years.

Producers notes

Vanguardist Wines is, in it's heart, a collaborative project between three friends, each from varying walks of life,  that came to the realisation (after many a late evening in the sleepy town of Hawkes Bay, New Zealand) that they held the same ideals about wine. We all have jobs and take time outside of our everyday lives so that we have our own creative licence to produce wines that we love to drink. 

‘An experimental spirit at heart’

Driven by a passion for creating wines with intrigue, 'V' is about pushing the boundaries of ‘status quo’ wine making and viticulture. Wines that are delicious, textural and enticing.

In an industry that is awash with overly commercialised wines produced by corporates who take up all the elbow room, shout noisily across the table and flood the market with mass produced wine that are often guised as ‘boutique wines’, we wish to make a humble stand and be vanguardist in our methods.

'V' is a nod to the small guys looking to keep it real, forever striving to unlock the imagination and inspire those with curious palates.
