"And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."
— Friedrich Nietzsche
le timbre is made in a small shed surrounded by an acre of vines in Keilor, Melbourne, Australia.
The wines are made with minimal additions, emphasizing purity of fruit, lively acidity and bright, ripe texture achieved by the use of oxygen and lees contact. Everything is wild fermented, unfiltered and unfined.
le timbre explores the symmetry between timbre and terroir. The word ‘timbre’ refers to a distinctive quality or character – most notably when describing a musical sound or voice.
The dream is to look after a mixed farm with a small vineyard from which all fruit is sourced and vinified. le timbre works with growers who practice conventional, minimal and/or regenerative farming methods. Everything else is done on-site by hand with the help of friends and family.
