Brood Fermentation Orchis 2022
This is the kind of light red we love to chill down, made from early picked Merlot from the Paritua vineyard in Hawkes Bay. It’s super pretty and crunchy, with an appealing herbal edge.
‘Brood’ is a beekeeping term for the part of a hive where life is regenerating. Fermentation is an incredible, natural process of chemical change. Putting the two words together already evokes a lot. Lauren Yap and Jim Brown of Brood Fermentation are based in Nelson, and focus on both brewing and winemaking. Their experience spans across the craft end of these industries in shit-hot regions like the Adelaide Hills and Oregon, and they put that experience to excellent use at Brood.
