CO is a collaboration between Doug Lilburne and Ben Haines, under the Collaborative Fermentations business.
CO was born in Ben’s winery early on in vintage 2021 after some wild, untamed discussions about farming and flavour….and what might be possible if grapes were co-fermented with orchard fruits. What followed was an explosion of inspiration and creativity, which ultimately led to a style of wines called “Orchard Wines”, as well as some other fresh, sulphur-free styles. The CO Orchard Wines are created from high-quality vineyards, together with the freshest local orchard fruits. All wines have zero additives, are bottled during vintage, and have been created to drink now with a chill. CO is cofermentation, collaboration, and community. It emerged from friendship, open thinking and inclusiveness.
A combination of Pinot Noir from the Yarra Valley and Sour Plums from Mount Evelyn, which have been naturally fermented together. Naturally settled, and bottled with some retained dissolved CO2. Zero added sulphur.
No added sulphites.
Suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians.
