Bright aromatics with hints of floral and stone fruits. Gently sparkling with soft bitter notes layered over vibrant fruits. Crisp acidity makes for a perfect palate cleansing style.

2021 Solstice

Fruit from the North West, Coal River and Huon Valleys picked between 11.9 and 12.5 baume. A novello red made from Dornfelder (50%), Merlot (25%), Baco Noir (17%), and Chardonnay (8%). We started with Merlot, added the Gamay, then Baco noir that was started carbonically and finally Dornfelder. Pressed to tank to complete malolactic ferment. Bottled unfined, unfiltered with no added sulphur.

Aromas of blackberries and wild strawberries complement savoury edges. Soft tannins, bright acid and mouth filling juicy fruits make for a nourish wine that will drink well any day of the week.

There is a little spritz in this wine from CO2 produced naturally during ferment. This helps keep the wine fresh without the use of added sulphur.
