Summary: Tread Softly is a contemporary range of wines seeking to deliver delicious, intensely flavoured wines that are naturally medium weighted and moderate in alcohol. By using more sustainable vineyard management and wine-making techniques to ensure their production has had a minimal impact to the environment. Tread Softly is committed to reducing their carbon footprint and so commits to planting an Australian Native Tree for every dozen sold.
Vineyards: Fruit for the Tread Softly premium range was Sourced from established vineyards of the Coldstream sub region of the Yarra Valley.
Winemaking: Handpicked from a single vineyard in Coldstream, VIC before 100% wild fermented in French barriques of which 20% was new. The wine then went through monthly battonage before bottling.
2020 Vintage: While the rest of Australia had a horror vintage in 2020, the Yarra Valley faired much better. Overall it was an excellent vintage, despite early concerns around smoke and disease pressure. Ultimately a mild year primarily driven by lighter, smaller bunches, with naturally high acidity, great flflavour and vibrant colours across the board. You’ll notice bright fruit flavours evident in this release.
Tasting Note: A classically lean rendition of Yarra Valley Chardonnay that is precise and taut in its delivery. It shows vital citrus flavours on the nose and palate making for a linear and powerful profile. Satisfying French oak is seamless and underpins the experience prior to a long finish. Pair with a chicken and leek pie.
