A cool climate wine from the Strathbogie ranges.
At 530 meters, planted in granitic quartz soils these 20 year old vines produced a high acidity and high sweetness juice for the relatively late 2020 harvest.
For those who like data the juice was: 13.2 Baume (13.58% potential alcohol!), 3.0 pH, 10.4 Titratable Acidity (Very high).
24% of the juice was fully fermented in an old french oak barrel with wild endogenous yeasts.
74% of the juice was fermented in at temperature controlled stainless steel tank with pitched commercial yeast, the ferment was stopped early to maintain sweetness.
The blend created a complex, fruit forward wine with layers given by the two fermentation methods.
A high acidity, mineral forward baseline balances the fleshy, floral sweetness of this intensely playful wine.
We love it, we loved making it, and we hope you love it too!
To be enjoyed with funky cheese and good vibes.
