2021 Murnang White di Renzo

$32.00 inc. GST
Aromatic, textural and unctuous. The Murnang White di Renzo is an incredibly versatile food wine. Especially alongside Asian food.
The Murnang White di Renzo label features a painting by Luke Sciberras of the Murnang, or Yam daisy. Once the foundational carbohydrate source in the Wiradjuri diet, these lovely plants are seldom seen in the wild today. One might hypothesise that this is a result of their dependence on human hands in order to multiply and proliferate. Today the Murnang is almost never seen on Australian tables. We hope to see that change. Through some keen local plant people we have some Murnangs growing in Sandy’s garden that have been grown from seeds donated by the fanatical Geoff and Judie Windsor. Our hope is to one day have enough seed of our own to share amongst other keen plant people, particularly within the Wiradjuri community and to even have Murnangs growing within the mid row of the Bella Luna Vineyard.
