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 on solids prior to bottling and an early release.
2023 Vintage: Spring was cooler than usual and with more rain events bringing soil moisture levels up. Summer likewise was cool yet with enough sunny days to enable beautiful albeit slower ripening. This made for a later vintage than prior years, but the resultant fruit quality is very, very good.
Tasting Note: A lighter take on Sauvignon Blanc due to its earlier picked and moderate credentials but no less flavoursome. Aromatic nose of citrus, guava and passionfruit complexed with subtle dried herbs, light spice, and cleansing acidity. Elegant and refreshingly vibrant and long to finish. Pair with Goat’s cheese salad.
