Variety and Provenance:
100% BAROSSA VALLEY MATARO
Georgiadis Estate, Dorrien and Schiller Vineyard, Light Pass Barossa Valley
In open stainless-steel vats. Partial whole bunch fermentation with regular pumping over and pigeage to optimise colour and flavour without over-extraction.
After around 10 days of post fermentation maceration, the wine was pressed off and racked into a combination of seasoned and new (10%) French oak barriques for 16 months to allow the fruit to develop richness, volume and complexity. A further year’s bottle age to bring completeness.
