Viticulture

The Stansborough vineyard in Williamstown (producing the Montepulciano clone SAVii01 & Aglianico clone FP501) is around 260m above sea level with a northerly aspect. Soil consists of deep red clay with bands of ironstone and quartz. The vineyard is own rooted. The vines are cane pruned.  The mid rows are cultivated to winter active.

The Andretzke vineyard (producing the Negroamaro clone VCR10) has a northerly aspect at 290m above sea level and is situated on the foothills of Angaston, loam to clay loam soils. The vines are spur pruned.

Wine making Notes

All three varieties were picked on the 10th May, the fruit fermented separately in open fermenters, the Negroamaro & Montepulciano in concrete open fermenters with heading boards and on skins for 12 days. The Aglianico was fermented in a smaller open with the inclusion of 10% whole clusters & fermented on skins for 14 days. Temperatures were allowed to reach 30C with minimal pump over on the concrete fermenters and hand plunging performed 3 times daily on the Aglianico. All wines were then basket pressed & transferred into 2-6 year old French oak hogsheads to undergo malolactic fermentation. After malo, SO2 was added to the barrels, the wine was then left on lees to mature for 6 months before racking and blending. The wine was then transferred back to the same oak and matured for another 5 months. No fining was used.

Colour

Bright ruby red with purple hues

Nose

Interesting aromas of red licorice, dried rose petals, cherry, citrus & red berry tea.

Palate

Sweet red berry fruit shows itself immediately on the palate but is followed by long fine fruit tannins that just keep going with natural acidity aiding the fantastic length on this wine.
