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.
2018 Vintage: The quality of this highly successful season started with excellent winter rains ensuring high soil moisture levels. Summer was warm but not excessively hot with few heat spikes. Late ripening conditions
were beautifully cool allowing for long slow development and perfect balance.
Tasting Note: The nose is bright and delightfully 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.
