Description

"Up front and beautifully fragrant, the bouquet shows Black Doris plum, blueberry, anise and olive characters on the nose with hints of floral and hazelnut. It is beautifully rounded and lingering on the palate with elegant weight and bright fruit intensity. At its best: now to 2023" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Oct 2019

Deep red with purple hues in the glass. Aromas of raspberry, red cherries and spice on the nose. Subtle pepper and chocolate with soft oak flavours on the palate, it has a soft yet earthy finish.

Angove Family Winemakers is one of Australia’s leading Organic winemakers. Sourced from their own Organically certified Nanya vineyard and premium certified Organic growers in the McLaren Vale region.

Despite a relatively dry winter, budburst was even and the timing was bout on par with previous years; however, the dry soil caused many growers to water the vines earlier than normal. With dry conditions comes lack of disease pressure allowing the vineyard team to minimise the use of any mildew sprays. Dry conditions continued into January, with above average temperatures and a four day stretch in mid-January of above 40 degrees. With good canopies and careful irrigation this did not do any damage to the fruit unlike previous years.

The grapes for this wine were harvested at night to make sure that they were as cool as possible. Crushed to both rotary and ‘sweeparm’ fermenters the grapes were then allowed to macerate for 2 days before inoculation and fermentation. Pressed off skins when optimum flavour and colour levels were achieved and allowed to go through the second malolactic fermentation. Stored on oak until assemblage the wine has then had minimal handling prior to fi ltration for bottling at our Certified Organic winery.

Food Pairing: Organic free range pork ribs, Vegan Lasagne.
