VINTAGE 2012 UPDATE – WEEK 3

Well now it really feels like we are getting somewhere. This week saw the remaining fruit for the iL Vescovo white harvested, some great flavours in the Roussanne and Verdelho. These have now been racked and are ready to commence a long slow temperature controlled ferment.

More excitingly today has been the harvest of our home shiraz blocks for the Chosen range. The House and The Road block are right next to each other but produce fruit with very different qualities. We look forward to showing you the new releases exclusively in the cellar door from May 1st.

150 tonnes crushed so far, another 500 odd to go!

Keeping us entertained is a great playlist from chief winemaker and resident Dj Michael Fragos. Check out the progress here and suggest a funky DJ name for him to go into the draw to win two tickets for Reds & Ribs. EnterĀ here by email.
