About This Product...
Grapes: 100 % Frappato.
Tasting notes: vivid red color with gentle purple tones. The bouquet is fresh, with lots of red berries and delicate sweet
spices. The palate is smooth, yet with a very lively acidity, but well balanced, with a spicy, long lasting finish.
‘As light on its feet as a hip hop dancer with a buzzing energetic acidity to match the juicy cherry fruit. Has to be chilled.’ Martin Moran, The Sunday Times (Ire) 16th July 2017 writing on reds for summer chilling.
Harvest: grapes are carefully harvested by hand towards the end of September.
Vinification: grapes are destemmed, but not crushed. Selected yeasts are added, and fermentation takes place at 20-22°. During the first part of the fermentation ‘remontage’ is carried out until around 7% alcohol is reached, and then as soon as the fermentation is completed, the wine is separated from the skins. Malolactic fermentation is usually spontaneous and takes place immediately after the primary fermentation is completed. The wine is then kept on fine lees and stirred periodically. The wine is then put in cement tanks and is not aged in oak.
