After hand harvesting of the grapes, the bunches were de-stemmed and gently crushed before fermentation was started with selected yeast strains. Malolactic fermentation was completed in stainless steel tanks but no oak was used for ageing, thus retaining plenty of ripe, red fruit flavours.
Why we like this wine
It is often the simplest things in life that give us the most pleasure. This is certainly true here. An organic wine at a very affordable price, fruit-driven with no harsh tannins to mask the freshness. It's simple ideal when paired with a pasta dish or you can even drink it by itself and slightly chilled too in the summertime.
- Fresh and lively
- Fruit driven
- Organic and great value
