DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Bright crimson red. Fragrant and inviting with luscious fruit characters of freshly picked summer berries, juicy cherries and satsuma plums.

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

The Amélie 2021 is a lighter wine style and is truly a taste of our vintage just finished. Being a lower alcohol style, it’s an easy drinking wine and made to enjoy in its youth. This soft, young, sweet red is best served chilled and is a versatile food wine - the perfect partner to wood fired pizza or spicy Indian fare. Think; fun in the sun on a clear summer’s day!
