Availability: In stock
Brick red. A touch of wet fern, slatey, floral with some juby aniseed notes on the nose. Assertive tannin, licorice and fennel lingering and fleshy. Food Pairing Osso bucco.
Since 2004, Don Lewis and Narelle King have been making wine in Priorat, Spain. Their immersion within the classic European wine regions and varietals sparked their interest in how these varietals could be grown and made in their own regions within Central Victoria.
The fruit was machine harvested and crushed to small open fermenters and hand plunged 3 times a day. After approximately 10days of fermentation during which time the temperature and acid levels were monitored and adjusted as necessary it was pressed to tank using a gentle air bag press. The wine was racked off gross lees directly to barrel to finish malolactic fermentation and mature in older used barriques for 12 months.
