Nomads Garden is an experimental wine label born out of the pristine landscape and viticultural diversity of our home in the Alpine mountains of North East Victoria. All our wines are single vineyard and handmade with low intervention in the winery, this means wines we:
· Only use the naturally occurring wild yeast indigenous to the vineyard of origin.
· Never add acid to our wines.
· Minimal fining agents are added to our wines. (only the the natural clay product bentonite is used to stabilize our whites)
Instead we let the brilliant fruit we have access to from the five distinct recognized wine regions (King Valley, Alpine Valleys, Beechworth, Rutherglen & Glenrowan) that make up North East Victoria (Truly a nomadic winemakers dream garden) shine through. These are wines that naturally reflect the year the grapes were grown and the beguiling land of which they were conceived.
These wines are intentionally not labelled or marketed as Natural Wines although the ethos in which they are made is very similar, we believe the term “Natural” is far to ambiguous with no set guidelines dictating what exactly a natural wine is. Instead we feel the term Low Intervention is a far better description of what we are doing with Nomads Garden, creating wines by hand with minimal additives and a simple winemaking process that is transparently labelled on the back of the bottle. We expect these wines to stand up to conventionally made wines; low intervention to us is not an excuse for faulty or poor quality wine.
