Chorizo and spicy chickpea tapas
Ripe and nicely perfumed on the nose displaying peach, pear and floral characters.
The palate is immediately attractive showing a touch of sweetness, crisp acidity and a pleasant long finish. It's rounded, juicy and very tasty!
Sourced from our inland vineyard planted on an old river terrace, these grapes were harvested in perfect condition. The shallow silts over free draining gravels retain enough moisture to keep the vines growing and healthy while creating a gentle water stress throughout the season. This ensures the grapes develop intensity of flavour and retain acidity, important for creating balanced wines. WINERY Following harvest, the grapes were gently pressed to provide soft, concentrated, flavoursome juice without picking up any bitter characters from the skins. A cool ferment in tank preserved fruit character and some time on lees has helped produce a wine that is fragrant and plush. The wine was then lightly fined and filtered to bottle.
