     ABOUT THE PRODUCER:  After ditching a career in finance and earning his master’s in winemaking in France, 1683’s founder Gordes Frobenius learnt to farm, pick and vinify Pinot Noir and Chardonnay over numerous vintages with two of Burgundy’s best: the venerated Eric Rousseau at Domaine Armand Rousseau, and Jean-François Germain, ‘the grower’s grower’, at Henri Germain. After seeing what great winemakers could coax out of these grapes in their ancestral home, Gordes was ready to learn what similarly skilled hands could achieve in the Antipodes. This curiosity led to vintages with Timo Mayer in the Yarra Valley, Woodlands in Margaret River, Felton Road in Central Otago and Dirty Three Wines in Gippsland. While these experiences have proven invaluable, Burgundy remains his north star. Since 2018, Gordes has made wine using the same classical, non-interventionist ethos that unpins the region’s very best Grand Crus, and he remains in close contact with his French mentors. The climate in Wilyabrup and Margaret River, while in some ways more advanced and difficult than Burgundy’s, is capable of producing wines of equal poise and elegance – with the added benefit of cooling sea breezes that regulate the hotter weather. Seasonality and terroir are the defining qualities of 1683 Wines, which are expressive yet delicately austere, always striving for the perfect balance of intensity and elegance. And in the tradition of Burgundy, the lucidity of single varieties is prized over blends. Not quite Old World and not quite New World, the wines display the best qualities of both.
