Summary: 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 and so commits to planting an Australian Native Tree for every 6pk sold.
Vineyards: 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.
Winemaking: Harvested in the cool of the morning to avoid the warmer temperatures of the day. The fruit is quickly delivered to the winery for chilling and crushing prior to a regular fermentation in stainless steel tank. Natural bubbles are achieved by secondary fermentation in charmat tanks (high pressured stainless steel).
2021 Vintage: If 2020 was all about the heat, then 2021 will be remembered as the wet season. In many parts of Australia, t was unseasonably wet in winter but not at critical times to do damage nor impact the resultant ripeness of the grapes. A cool and dry summer meant even ripening was achieved between dry and rainy spells and the ensuing fruit quality was excellent and for once yields were up making for a bumper harvest in 2021.
Tasting Note: An aromatically fresh Moscato with lively sugestions of musk and orange with a distinctive foral life. On the palate there's a gentle effervescence delivering a burst of sweet citrus fruit. It offers pure refreshment and soft cleansing acidity on the finish makig it a perfect brunch option for a spicy Asian salad or even a fruit pavlova.
