2016 King Valley Gamay
{Purple Prose}

NEW RELEASE

winemaking

Picked at 12 Be’ in early March. The small 2 tonne harvest was chilled and then destemmed to a stainless steel open fermenter.  After a 2-3 day soak the natural ferment started and for a total of 9 days the ferment was minimally plunged and pumped over. Pressed off to 1, 2 and 3 year old puncheons and hogsheads. Natural malo-lactic fermentation. No fining or filtration and bottled in December under screw cap. Serve chilled on hot days!

nose

Wonderful savoury, earthy notes combine with red currents and wild strawberries. Star anise and herbal aromas in the background.

palate

Light bodied with juicy fruits and super soft tannins. Don’t be fooled by the upfront fruit, there is a serious mid palate that soon kicks in. The tannins are so supple that this wine can be enjoyed well chilled on a hot day with no real impact on the structure of the wine. Enjoy!
