Pretty Good

early budburst and early strong growth was followed by warm temperatures through late Spring and early Summer resulting in an excellent flowering and fruit set. A wetter than usual Spring/Summer led onto a dry Autumn which was ideal to keep disease pressures low as the fruit ripened. The winter rains from 2015 ensured a healthy crop load with intense varietal character but with moderate acidity. This wine is lean and elegant with a pale straw colour. The bouquet features white peach with toasty vanillin. The palate shows excellent depth of melons with zesty acidity. Some creaminess has been contributed from partial barrel fermentation and further maturation in French oak with occasional batonnage. Bottled after 8 months in oak.

 

 

The fruit for this wine was grown especially for Tertini Wines in the Tumbarumba region of New South Wales. The vineyard is situated at an altitude of 650m and has basalt volcanic soils. This vineyard has a long slow ripening period from its cool nights to ensure our fruit is grown with the richness, aromatic development and balance that this region is renowned for.
