2013 Vinteloper VUWP Red #1. South Australia.

“For the people, by the people”

Vinteloper VUWP Red #1

VUWP stands for Vinteloper Urban Winery Project and was part of the Adelaide Fringe Festival. It’s an interesting project where Vinteloper brought their winery to the city of Adelaide and created this wine with the help of those visiting the urban winery. Patrons could jump in a vat of the wine and help stomp on the fermenting grapes. This wine is a blend of Aglianico, Shiraz, Barbera, Sangiovese, Graciano & Pinot Noir.

On first opening there is a slight amount of funk on the nose.

With air, sweet plums emerge with strawberry, raspberry and pomegranate notes. There’s a background of dark chocolates, amaro bitters, chewy cherries along with some salami and a touch of coffee and cloves. Moderate length and has a bright cheerful mood to it.

I feel that this is more of a food wine that demands a plate of charcuterie to accompany it.

Have a look at this video of the Urban Winery Project in full swing.

About Perth Wine Enthusiast

Casual observations of a Perth wine enthusiast. I am a recently turned 40 husband to a wonderful wife and father to 3 fantastic children. When work and family are not occupying me, my thoughts frequently turn towards two of my other passions in life, wine and food.
