Ministry of Clouds is the creation of Bernice Ong and Julian Forwood and it’s just on a decade since they decided to leave the security of the corporate wine world (the ministry) for the adventure (the clouds) of their own wine venture. And it’s been quite a journey thus far.
Hand picked, whole-bunch pressed, wild ferment in used French barriques, matured for 11 months on lees. The decision to bypass any new oak had a win-win outcome, reducing the cost price while focusing on the exceptional quality of the fruit. It has drive and complexity, with grapefruit leading a complex offer of layered fruit, creamy cashew and sustained length.
