Benevolent Neglect - Counoise 2015


About the Wine

A rare chance of a 100% Counoise, originally from the Rhone and used in the famous Chateauneaf-de-Pape.  Only 0.5% of the appelation is planted with Counoise - making it very unsual indeed.


What Benevolent Neglect Say

Organically farmed fruit from the mountain ridges outside the city of 1,000 buddhas, our Counoise presents a unique, light and fun wine for everyday drinking that pairs well with everything.

What We Say

A seriously well made wine - which really brings out the mineral backed fruit.  Floral on the nose with boysenberry on the palate.  Lovely lingering after taste which grows nicely in complexity. 

A completely natural wine with less than 25pppm sulphur, this has the characteristics of the best made examples of this type of winemaking - a fuller mouthfeel, with great texture ... without any of the bitterness which can taint inferior natural wines.


About the Producers

benevolent neglect is the creation of two East Coast transplants who moved west with the ambition of one day making great wine. Our philosophy is simple – find the best quality fruit we can get our hands on, and then do as little as possible to it.  Our search for the best grapes came to fruition when we met John Painter and Jean Gadiot, who have owned Las Madres vineyard since its inception. John and Jean converted overgrown pasture land into a beautiful VSP trellised, cool-climate Syrah vineyard with two distinct blocks. We are honored that they have allowed us to give our wine a Vineyard designate and proud to say that our wine is made with as little interference as possible.
