Lucy Margaux Vineyards

The quote from winemaker Anton Von Klopper which seems to sum up the wines and winemaking from this small South Australian winery who has rapidly gained a cult following for their unique and special wines is ‘a winemaker can choose to be either an artist or a chemist’. Strict and thoughtful adherence to the principles of Biodynamics and a very ‘hands off’ approach to vinification as well as a zero tolerance to most additions if the modus operandi here. Farming and making wine in this fashion does not always work well and can pose a lot of problems for the vigneron if they are not incredibly diligent and fastidious in all aspects of their farming and winemaking but in the hands of this young gun it certainly does yield some truly special wines.
