Minimal intervention, maximum care, is the motto of the Konpira Maru Wine Company, established by Alastair Reed and Sam Cook who met at a winemaking course at the Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE (now Melbourne Polytechnic) before joining forces and launching the project in 2013.

It is quite common in Australia, and California for that matter, not to own vineyards but to buy grapes from trusted growers. Since their inaugural release of just 600 bottles in 2014 they have been sourcing grapes from South Burnett and the Granite Belt in Queensland and from Kilmore in Victoria. In 2016 they purchased their very own piece of dirt (to use Aussie parlance) and include grapes from their Whitlands vineyard high above King Valley in the mix.

Known for making killer wines in a new school fashion Konpira Maru are just breaking into the UK scene and we've paired up three absolute beauties for you to get a taste of what they are all about

First up in the trio is Gymata Syrah, a juicy red built to enjoy with pals and the complete opposite of what many would expect from a Shiraz. The Gymkata is made from Shiraz picked nice and early from a single vineyard in Killmore, Victoria, Australia. Made with low levels of intervention but high levels of care, this bright and bouncy red wine is begging for a chill. It's flecked with pepper and herb notes, sits light a crisp in the mouth. A new school version of the good old Shiraz grape.

Next is The Icarus Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot which was a real risk reward wine for the Konpira Maru boys. Making a Cabernet, especially one from one of the coolest climate vineyards on mainland Victoria is fraught with danger. However, the epic hang-time the berries get in Kilmore, nearly 9 months, means green aromatics are rare and a nice balanced Cabernet can be produced. With this one they co-fermented the two varieties after a 7 day cold soak, and then it was left to macerate for 10 days following primary ferment. The wine showed epic quinine and blueberry throughout ferment and they are still in evidence now but less pronounced, just one part of what is a really delicious wine.

To finish we have Admiral Ackbar, a magical light Orange Wine made by the aussie mavericks. Made from 100% Semillon which are destemmed and fermented in stainless steel vats followed by two weeks on skins. A wine made for summer with big lemon curd and passionfruit notes, super fresh, with a clean line of acidity and a very light chalky tannin from the skin contact.
