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: A fine example of a structured single vineyard Rose that is made up of a few varieties but primarily Sangiovese. The wine was crushed and then steeped on the skins for three hours to lend colour prior to a cool ferment.
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: Bright and vibrant nose and a seductively blushing colour that makes it look immediately inviting in the glass. Very pretty fruit palate showing hints of strawberries and cream with a dust of tannins and a nice dry finish and a refreshing burst of acidity. Pair it with a charcuterie and cheese platter.
