Summary: The See, Hear, Speak No Evil Organic wines are sourced from fully certified Organic vineyards and made using minimal additions. The wines are Organic, Vegan friendly and made to United States guidelines for minimal preservatives (less than 30ppm Free Sulphur. A new benchmark in affordable Organic Wines.
Winemaking: Sourced primarily from a mature, dry-grown vineyards in the McLaren flat sub district of McLaren Vale. The fruit is hand-harvested and sorted before de-stemming and cool fermentation in small two tonne open fermenters with regular hand plunging. Matured in seasoned French oak (30% new French) for ten months before bottling with minimal filtration and sulphur addition.
2017 Vintage: 2017 saw a return to vintage conditions not commonly seen for over two decades. A very wet winter followed by a cool summer with few spikes of heat meant that vintage as up to a month later than what has been common recently. A dry and consistently moderate autumn ensured the fruit was able to ripen slowly in ideal conditions. This “throwback” vintage will become famed for the quality and elegance of the fruit.
Tasting Note: Vivid red / purple in colour with an lifted nose of ripe fruits - blackberries and blood plums. The palate is opulent and inviting, flooded with dark plum and blackcurrant fruit flavours and framed by exotic smoked spices and fine-grained savoury tannins. The finish is long and impressively detailed for such a rich and mouth-filling wine. Approachable now but with the ability to improve in the cellar for up to 10 years.
