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: Premium quality Pinot Gris from a single vineyard in Coldstream, 20% of which was wild fermented in old oak, another 20% was cold fermented in tank. It was stirred on its lees monthly prior to bottling to ensure texture.
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.
Tasting Note: The nose gives it away that this is Pinot Gris has it exudes varietal aromas of Nashi pear and hints of spice. The palate shows good texture with a clean citrus flavour and a nice grip on the finely balanced finish. Pair with a roast pork belly with cauliflower puree.
