Callie Jemmeson and Nina Stocker are the dynamic young winemakers behind the Pachamama label. They work with growers to make wines from across Victoria. For this beauty, the fruit came from the Full Moon vineyard in the Upper Yarra Valley.
Juicy cranberries and early-season strawberries announce themselves immediately as the wine hits the glass. A few minutes later, the aromas develop into sultry rhubarb with fresh cinnamon sticks and star anise.

Drink with duck liver pâté slathered on lightly toasted brioche.
