Willoughby Bridge Vineyard and Chalmers Vineyard, Colbinabbin, Heathcote G.I

Striking Blood Plum colour fills the glass with a very pale rim.

Vivid core of ripe strawberry aromas, powerful rose, lavender. Heady perfume.
Dusty brick and cherry, strawberry, cranberry crush. A dry wine with small berries, very fine and persistent tannins and excellent flow. Screams for charcuterie and a game of cards but will be way below its pay grade here. Could be treated like high quality Beaujolais or Pelaverga at the dinner table.

Incredibly perfumed wine with piles of fruit and fabulous tannic complexity. Excellent drinking.


A Block and C Block at Willoughby Bridge vineyard. 
Both grafted in 2016 on very fine, iron and clay-rich soils. N/S orientation. 


An early harvested (March 6th) direct pressed, free run rose from the A Block at Willoughby Bridge was used as a sort of starter ferment, pressed to tank and later moved to old puncheon where healthy yeasts were encouraged with air circulation.

CVT230 clone from C block at Willoughby Bridge was picked 24th of March, and each cement fermenter was inoculated with a full puncheon of the earlier harvested A Block. Allowed to ferment undisturbed. Pressed at 8 days to stainless. The wine is exposed to oxygen early to help yeast complete fermentation and for tannin resolution.

Racked a couple of times before being moved to old puncheon for a rest until bottling. No additions (in spite of the back label).
