Tasting notes

This deeply coloured wine displays perfumed aromas of dark berry fruits, violets and dried herbs, with complexing oak spice characters. A smooth and approachable palate follows with sweet fruit, supple tannins and moreish acidity.

Producer

VILLA MARIA

Vinification and aging

Destemmed and crushed to fermenters. Inoculated with several strains of yeast and fermented at 30 degrees celsius.. Post fermentation pressed to oak barrel, 15% new, for 18 months maturation. Blended, egg white fined and filtered to bottle.

Terroir

The region was treated to a growing season even warmer than the drought vintage immediately prior, but experienced intermittent rain fall events, enough to encourage vine health and flavour development without bringing on disease. Typically cooler nights moderated warm daytime temperatures and allowed for steady sugar and flavour accumulation across vineyards.
