Vino Volta Chenin Blanc Nothing Wrong with Old Skool 12pk 2020
Small batch, lo-fi winemaking, highlighting the star varietals of the region; Chenin Blanc and Grenache.
A relatively new producer on the scene, Vino Volta aim to make approachable medium-bodied wines with a low impact approach in both the vineyard, and the winery. This is the wine-child of Garth Cliff, and Kirsten McGann, partners in life and business. Garth has been making wine for the past 20 years, the last 10 with Houghton in the Swan Valley, which allowed him to gain great insight and appreciation for the region. Kirsten, also a wine industry lifer, handles the hard stuff, while garth focuses on the winemaking. Modern, bright and highly drinkable, Vino Volta is a producer we are very excited to grow with.
“Garth Cliff, a quiet revolutionary in the Swan Valley. Or something like that. I like this energy around the region and a willingness to innovate. Kudos... If we can help inspire the Swan to do more of this I would be pretty happy – that’s the main idea with this range of wines."

Vino Volta Chenin Blanc Nothing Wrong with Old Skool 2020
Super-pretty; Geraldton wax, shaved macadamia, Pink Lady apple, cheesecloth, lanolin, fennel flower and beeswax. The palate follows in exactly this manner, leaving a trail of nashi pear on the tongue. Gorgeous.
