New Wine Releases

2021 Dolcetto2021 Dolcetto

Our 2021 Dolcetto was harvested on the 25th of February at our Wildwater site before being crushed, destemmed and transferred to an open fermenter, where the juice was inoculated with yeast. Once the ferment had begun, the skins were plunged every 6 hours and kept under 30°C until dryness was achieved. Then, before the ferment was complete, the wine was inoculated with an MLF bacteria. The wine was then left for 7 days on skins, once fermentation was complete. 

Our 2021 Dolcetto is a deep raspberry hue, with a palate of black cherries and liquorice. It is a dry and scrumptious red wine with mouth-filling savoury tannins. Enjoy this wine with pasta with a meat sauce, roasted poultry or a simple pizza.

Our 2021 has already picked up a few awards with a Silver Medal at the 2021 Australian Alternatives Varieties Wine Show and most recently 91 points in the May/June 2022 Winestate Magazine where it was described as a “bright brambly bouquet and a purple fruit palate with big savoury tannins”.

2022 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Our 2022 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon began its journey in late February with the Sauvignon Blanc from Kinglake harvested on the 23rd of February and the Semillon from Wildwater harvested on the 25th of February.

The winemaking process for the 2022 SBS involved a separate cold ferment using stainless steel. The two wines were blended to achieve optimum balance and flavours whilst maintaining a predominantly Sauvignon Blanc character. 

Our 2022 SBS is pale straw in colour, with fresh apple to lime notes and herbaceous overtones. A clean crisp wine best enjoyed with grilled fish or chicken, or a simple Caesar salad.
