Break Free natural wines are born from a desire to showcase grapes with no intervention, to hero a true expression of their essence. Break Free wines centre around appreciating a grape’s heritage and flavour.
Born from the trials & travels of Trudy Stacy. When Nick and Trudy started Clandestine Vineyards, it was a moment of absolute clarity for them both. They were chasing a shared dream. Nick had 30 years of experience in the wine game, which was a huge asset to Trudy and to their business. But she also wanted to break free and express herself on her terms.
“I wanted to broaden our horizon to include the natural wine market. I wanted to showcase grapes with no intervention, to hero a true expression of their essence. Vin Nat is a fantastic opportunity to appreciate a grape’s heritage and flavour. The wines we have selected to form a part of Break Free symbolise the parts of my life that signify balance and clarity.” – Trudy Stacy – Vintner, Clandestine Vineyards CFO

The second vintage of Break Free Little Wing sees a change in region from the Great Southern (WA) to the higher altitude, cooler region of Adelaide Hills (SA).
Five tonnes of cool climate Shiraz is picked with one tonne whole-bunch for carbonic maceration – the rest is open fermented on skins for 10 days, hand plunged twice daily, pressed, and then racked into old French oak hogsheads malolactic fermentation and seven months maturation. 5% of aromatic, stainless steel fermented Pinot Noir is added to the final blend. bottled fresh with no fining or filtration. Vegan. Minimal sulphites.
The Little Wing Shiraz Noir Carbonic is the ultimate summer mixup – vibrant, juicy and super fresh – you can even serve it chilled! Stacks of ripe supple cherries, plums and spice, lifted nuances of the carbonic gives exotic perfumes and interest to the palate…of which there is oodles of flavour from start to finish – the lip-smacking crunchy acidity is so refreshing, it’ll have you coming back for more.
Pair with a great steak sandwich. Throw a bottle into your picnic hamper. Take it to your friends next BBQ. You’ll be glad you did…fly on, Little Wing!
