Description

  • Dark plum
  • Vanilla
  • Toasted nut
  • Succulent & silky

"Beautifully ripe and inviting, the wine shows dark plum, raspberry, vanilla, anise and toasted nut characters on the nose, leading to a wonderfully flavoursome palate that's succulent and silky. Youthfully attractive and delectable. At its best: now to 2024" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

This moderate alcohol Shiraz from South Australia shows silky and seductive fruit flavours. It’s hard to understand how no flavour is compromised despite the lower alcohol yet it delivers a Shiraz that typifies South Australia without the heat or jamminess. Nicely rounded with soft tannins and persistent intensity make it a genuine crowd pleaser.

Sourced from established vineyards of the rich soils of the border of Victoria and South Australia. The vines are mostly dry-grown and utilise expert canopy management to help to control ripening and vigour.

2019 was a challenging year and so very much makes you think of Australia. It was a hot vintage with only sporadic rains in some parts causing the berries to ripen sooner than prior years. Through great management the resultant fruit is bright and flavourful with a soft acidity. Lucky for us this would be a drink up vintage rather than hold for cellaring. Enjoy in its youth.

Harvested in the cool of the morning to avoid the warmer temperatures of the day. The fruit is quickly delivered to the winery for destemming and crushing prior to a regular fermentation in stainless steel tank. The wine is aerated and temp controlled for an even ferment and then spends 3 months settling in tank prior to bottling and an early release.

Tread Softly is a contemporary range of wines seeking to deliver delicious, intensely flavoured wines that are naturally medium weighted and moderate in alcohol. By using more sustainable vineyard management and wine-making techniques to ensure their production has had a minimal impact to the environment. Tread Softly is committed to reducing their carbon footprint.

Food Pairing: Pair it with beef tartare.
