Cobaw Ridge Il Pinko Rose 2018 - Macedon Ranges
Bottle size: 750ml
A little richer and a touch more fruit focussed than prior. Made under our normal methods, very gently pressed, with no rotation, juice naturally fermented and matured utilising large old French oak and Qvevri. Full malo and zero so2 till post blending prior to bottling. "Classic pale salmon pink. Showing some fine spice and syrah herbs on the nose. Great focus and interesting and a tussle between texture /concentration."
Low cropped mature vines utilized. Fruit treated with respect, soft destemming, and membrane pressed, so to ensure full ripe tannins not harsh extractive or over worked. Hand plunged to softly extract maximum colour and flavours.
Small open fermenters used to gain maximum complexity between vats.
The wine allowed to go through full natural malo lactic fermentation in oak the summer following vintage, which produces a fuller softer effect.
All wine matures in barriques for 12 to 24 months, with the introduction of 25 to 30% new barriques each year. Not too much new oak so as to let terrior speak and not the barrel.
With minimal handling pre bottling all the red wine is neither fined nor filtered prior to bottling . No acid additions are required, just low levels of sulphur dioxide at point of bottling. Nothing added, nothing taken away.
All this goes back to good cool climate winemaking. Every thing is done so as to promote and preserve the full integrity of our unique vineyards terrior.
