Aromas of fresh berries leap from the glass; redcurrant, raspberry, blackberry and hits of dried herbs. This follows onto the fruit driven palate where you will experience is a melody of berries, with hints of sweet herbs, and dark chocolate. The tannins are soft and chalky with good length.
Whole bunches of Teroledgo were hand harvested and placed in the bottom of open top fermenters, which helps to create more floral characters and elegance in the wine. The remaining grapes were crushed and pumped on top and were cooled to below 10 degrees Celsius. We maintained a low temperature for 5 days allowing natural fermentation to begin before moving the tanks into the sun to warm up and adding yeast to continue fermentation. The tanks were hand plunged to encourage soft extraction of flavour and chalky silky tannins. The grapes were lightly pressed and the wine placed into stainless steel for 5 months before bottling preservative free.
