After Five Wine Co Montepulciano comes from a single vineyard in Williamstown.
All the fruit was destemmed and lightly crushed (rollers open) to one open fermenter with header boards. Temperatures were allowed to reach 28C, the open fermenter was pumped over 3 times per day. After 13 days on skins the open fermenter was basket pressed and transferred into 1 x new French oak hogshead with the balance to 1-4 year old French oak hogsheads and underwent malo-lactic fermentation. After malo-lactic fermentation the wine was racked from barrel, SO2 was added and then the wine was then transferred back to the same oak and matured for another 16 months. No finings used.
Vibrant colour, complex aromas of plum cherry and dried herbs. A medium bodied wine that still manages a balance between vibrant fruit and firm but fine tannin. It packs all the elements that this variety delivers, natural acidity delivers palate length.
