Vineyard: Sourced from two vineyards in Langhorne Creek, the Dolcetto is North-South facing on a red-brown loam while the Shiraz is East-West facing on predominantly sand. The Dolcetto adds red berries, spiciness and savoury tannins while the Shiraz adds body and richness to the wine.
Winery: Both parcels were destemmed only to Potter Fermenter and chilled to 20 degrees, inoculated with a varietal enhancing yeast strain and allowed to stay on skins for 8 days while fermenting to 1 Baume. Pressed to tank with only the shiraz seeing some French oak. left on lees for three months to build some texture before being blended, clarified and bottled to retain vibrancy and lifted primary fruit.
A great match with kangaroo fillet with a plum jus, beetroot risotto or a charcuterie board.
