Amélie 2019

Red cherry & strawberry with sweet bramble spritz

$18.00 CELLAR CLUB
$16.20

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

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.

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:

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.
