Grape Variety: 40% Bonvedro, 40% Mataro, 20% Graciano
Region: 100% Barossa Valley
Winemaker: Nicholas Crampton and Aaron Woods
Pack Size: 6 Bottle Pack
Vineyards: Sourced from three vineyards – Mataro from the 80 year-old Marschall Vineyard in Vine Vale, Bonvedro came from 20 and 70 year-old blocks from John’s Vineyard in Light Pass and the Graciano from the 9 year old Cowham Vineyard in Light Pass.
Winemaking: Chilled overnight before a cold soak for five days at eight degrees. Fermented in small open fermenters with twenty percent whole bunch. The fruit was allowed to rise to natural temperature and begin wild fermentation without any additions or sulphur. Pressed to tank and matured without the influence of oak. Bottled without fining, ultra loose filtration and no sulphur addition. Less than 8ppm FS02 post bottling so technically a Preservative Free Wine
2018 Vintage: the winter of 2017 was very mild and without any rain at all until the month of June with soils replenished for the pending growing season. The mild conditions continued through Spring and Summer with very little rain but also without significant heat periods. The ripening was even throughout most of the Barossa delivering very high quality with bright fruit flavours and good natural acidity.
Tasting Note: A complex and expansive nose with an array of red and dark berry, earth, exotic spice, cedarwood and full of brightness. The palate is medium to full bodied with ripe red and dark berry flavours framed by array of exotic spice and dried herbs before a long finish carried by soft tannins and bright acidity. Delightfully different, a world away from Shiraz, with character to burn and very refreshing courtesy of the bright acidity.
