Momento Mori was born out of a desire to make wines that first and foremost have respect for the living. ‘Momento Mori’ is Latin for ‘Remember that you have to die’ (or near to), after all… New Zealander Dane Johns started his career in wine working for Bill Downie in Victoria, later moving on to start his own label with fruit sourced from just a few organic growers throughout the region.
Dane works primarily with Italian varietals such as Fiano, Moscato Giallo, and Nero d’Avola that seem to shine in this climate. All of Dane’s wines are as hand-made as can be. Small ferments, wild yeast, no new oak, no mechanical pumps, no fining, no filtration, no additions. All of his wines are full of character, freshness and purity, and above all else, they are alive.
"As usual for Fistful of Flowers, this is Moscato Giallo and Vermentino grown by the Chalmers family on the slopes of Mt Camel in Heathcote Victoria. Long steady ferments in 100% stainless. Approximately 3 weeks on skins, pressed and aged in stainless. Racked only once, bottled by gravity. An expressive florals on the nose, perfumed stone fruits, musk and spring blossoms. The palate is fresh and pure with cool slated steeliness and fine salinity. ABV 12.0% "
