DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Taken from Amélie, the famous French movie, the wine was affectionately named after the main character in the movie, Amélie Poulin who is sweet, charming and very French. - Colin & Jules Campbell

Wine Making

The fruit was chilled at crushing to provide 3 days cold maceration before inoculation with an aromatic yeast strain. Fermentation proceeded in a stainless steel fermenter for 6 days before pressing. Fermentation was arrested with a small amount of residual sugar and prepared immediately for bottling.

Cellaring

Our Amélie is a wine to enjoy in its youth, when the natural berry characters of the Merlot and Shiraz grape are at their most vibrant. Best served chilled, Amelie is a versatile food wine and the perfect partner to wood fired pizza or spicy Indian fare.

Palate:

Ruby red with hints of purple & brilliant clarity. Fragrant and inviting fruit characters of blackcurrant, violets and plums with leafy notes and hints of ground cinnamon. A luscious, mouth filling palate of rich juicy fruit compote. A touch of natural fruit sweetness was preserved to support the soft and silky tannins, leading to a easy finish.
