2019 Brecon Feral Underclass

What's in a name, besides a great saga? Well, Brecon loves how this name rolls off the tongue and how it “oh so fits” for many occasions, even if the acronym is accidentally risque. Longtime Breconites might recall our debut vintage of this wine attracted 99 points. Our crumbley vino maker actually suspects this one is reminiscent of that original bottling. Lush dark fruit and layers of peppery spice. You might also notice there are two underappreciated varieties. This is quite the feral blend indeed. The perfect pairing at a lazy hammock hangout! The day will just fly by.

Production notes

Starting with a cool soak and just a little wild fermentation before hitting it with a natural yeast selected from an iconic California Petite Sirah vineyard. There must be a real party going on in there as the purple foam atop the tank is something to behold. We then stain our lovely new 70 gallon barrels when filling them with this purple froth (Well, 40% of them are new anyway). Hide it away for 18 months before briefly blending it in a tank prior to bottling.

94 points - Purely Domestic Wine Report, March 2022 

Rolph vineyard is a superlative dry grown vineyard, above Adelaida Road, run by a detail oriented statistician. Brecon was so impressed by the Petite Sirah on this property that we negotiated to graft over some Port varietals to Petite just so we could actually get some. To sweeten the deal, we agreed to take a little Zinfandel which adds the spice to this wine's structure and jamminess.
