Grape Variety: Semillon 70% Sauvignon Blanc 30%
Summary: Bleeding Heart Wine was born from a shared passion in the wines and vineyards of South Australia. The ancient soils and moderate climate create rich and full bodied wines that are incredibly satisfying. Few that experience the food and wine or the beautiful landscape could argue that it is not better a bleeding heart than none at all.
Vineyards: Sourced from established vineyards in the Adelaide Hills and the Lower Murray. The sheltered aspect and cold Autumn nights of the Adelaide Hills combine to ensure excellent aromatics and the retention of natural acidity in the elegant fruit harvested. Lower Murray component delivers impressive intensity of flavour and length.
Winemaking: Fruit is harvest during the early morning hours to retain freshness before a fast and precise vinification in stainless steel with minimal oxygen contact to maximise fruit expression and aromatics. A cool fermentation (15 to 18 degrees) is undertaken in stainless steel tanks before maturation on lees for four months to build depth and texture with malolactic fermentation prevented.
Vintage 2022: 2022 will probably be remembered as wet in most parts of Australia. However, in inland vineyards the rain did not hinder, rather it helped vines stay healthy and created favourable conditions for a modest and favourable crop across much of the country. Overall, quality was up but yields were down.
Tasting Note: There’s a reason these two varieties make great stablemates. They complement each other perfectly. Aromatic nose of citrus, fresh herbs with a passionfruit lift that is fruit forward. The palate displays fruit flavours of lemon and guava that ensure a good length and cleansing acidity. Pair with pan fried scallops with salsa Verde.
