Vintage 2019 was back to a more typical ripening pattern due to a mild lead in to spring and then moderate temperatures throughout the growing season with minimal heat spikes. Many varieties were ready to harvest at the same time however, putting pressure on our vineyard teams. These conditions were welcome but highlighted the importance of well managed vinicultural and irrigation practices. With exceptional care we were able to ride the wave of grapes coming at us and deliver first quality fruit to the winery.
Wine Style –Australian Cabernet-Shiraz
The grapes for this wine were harvested at night to make sure that they were as cool as possible. Crushed to cooled fermenters the grapes were then allowed to cold macerate for 2 days prior to inoculation and fermentation. Pressed off skins when optimum flavor and color levels were achieved. Stored in seasoned oak barrels until assemblage the wine has then had minimal handling prior to filtration for bottling at our Angove’s Certified Organic winery.
