2023 Sang de Soleil Sunbury Chenin Blanc

by Blood Moon Wines View producer profile

Vineyard - I have farmed the Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc vines at Longview Creek vineyard between Sunbury and Riddells Creek since 2015. I follow organic practices, using only copper and sulphur sprays, mulches and manures. No herbicides.

Winemaking - Less than propitious weather during flowering, frost and hail all combined to ensure yields were low and only 2 barrels were made. Due to the hail damage, there was no skin soak this year. Instead, the fruit was direct-pressed into two old neutral French oak barrels for wild fermentation and maturation for 6 months. Both barrels were left on lees through to bottling.

No additions apart from sulphur, no fining or filtration.

Vegan friendly.

Who am I?

My name is Matt Aulich, and I started Blood Moon Wines in 2014 with a couple of mates.In 2019 I went solo. This is oversimplifying, but I come at winemaking from two angles:

One, I get a kick out of flavours and aromas. The wine offers a vast spectrum, both in its final bottled form and along the way, from fresh grapes to ferments and barrels. Then there’s texture… this is a primal sensory experience but infinitely nuanced.

Two, the mortal coil is beyond wonderful, but at times, let’s face it, it can be a tough gig. It can be awful. It can be boring. Sometimes people want something that harmonises with the good times; sometimes we need to jazz it up or just ease the furrowed brow. I try to provide that. In moderation. or not.

I grow grapes in Sunbury and the diamond valley, and I source other fruit from responsible growers all over victoria. I’m equally happy working with the traditional french varietals and a suite of Italians. The latter are often well adapted to our hotter, dryer farming conditions.

I try to make wines that are expressive of time and place, where a less-is-more approach in the winery comes in. I believe that everyone should be able to buy good wine. Assuming you think mine is good, I try to keep it affordable for you.
