  • Winemaking Notes

    When deciding when to pick our Bacchus grapes we either aim to pick them before the grapes are considered ripe, or once the grapes are considered overripe. These Bacchus Block grapes are from some very ripe fruit, which had a kiss of botrytis (noble rot). After crushing and destemming, the juice was left in contact with the skin before being gently pressed and clarified by flotation to allow a rapid inoculation to maintain maximum flavours found in the grapes. The juice was then inoculated with a T. delbrueckii yeast strain, which helps reveal thiol-type varietal aromas of citrus and tropical fruits. Once this fermentation was underway the wine was co-inoculated with a S.cerevisiae yeast strain, specifically selected for its ability to reveal a thiol which has aromas of box wood and herbs. After fermentation the wine was rested on lees for four months before been bottled early to maintain the powerful freshness. (PDO)
