Summary: The Hero of Zero wines are hand-crafted from the best quality fruit sourced from premium vineyards across South Australia, including McLaren Vale and the Barossa. With meticulous handling in the vineyard and winery, the pristine fruit will have less exposure to anything harmful that may normally require the addition of preservatives. Our wines are crafted to be brightly coloured, exotically fragrant, full-flavoured and critically, they sing without the addition of preservatives. Perfectly suited to many cuisines, these wines are also crafted to ensure they are suitable for Vegans
Winemaking: Healthy and problem free fruit is selected in the vineyard and then picked in the cool of thenight and then rushed to the nearby winery for a fast and focused vinification. Fermentation is cool in a closed static fermenter before a short maturation on lees and bottling.
2019 Vintage: Later than usual and more low yielding but the quality was spot on for many of the growers and vignerons of the Barossa. A dry winter and spring followed by a very hot summer saw fruit picker earlier than usual. Lack of rain did not add to disease pressure with soil retaining moisture due following sporadic rainfall events.
Tasting Note: Classic Barossa on the nose with wild with aromas of dark berries, ripe blood plans and exotic spice. The palate is supple and fruit driven with a mouth-filling burst of spicy, dark berry fruit flavours wrapped in fine tannins before a bright, lifted finish. Perfect with a mild beef curry.
