Summary: Tread Softly is a contemporary range of wines that are naturally medium in weight and lower in alcohol. Tread Softly is dedicated to reducing its carbon footprint and chooses sustainable vineyard management and winemaking techniques to ensure its production has a minimal impact on the environment. For every case of Tread Softly sold, the brand proudly commits to planting an Australian native tree – to date, that is over 1.3 million trees.
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 destemming and crushing prior to a regular fermentation in stainless steel tank. The wine is aerated and temp controlled for an even ferment and then spends 3 months in tank prior to bottling and an early release.
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: A lighter bodied rendition of Sangiovese displaying dark cherries and a savoury dried herb complexity. The palate is juicy and soft ripe berry flavours with a hint of earthy intensity. As this wine is lighter in body it can handle a quick chill prior to serving. Perfect with a classic dish of penne and mushrooms.
