Taking a little inspiration from our Portuguese friends, here’s our Barossa Vintage P@rt. A.K.A Very.Special.Vintage.P@ort . Early picked Syrah spread over three nally bins, foot stomped twice a day to extract maximum colour and tannin. Whilst we didn’t adopt the tradtional lagar approach, Motely Crue accompanied us on this stomping journey. Aged Brandy Spirit added at a mild baume of 3 arrested the ferment at 52gms residual. Must was immediately pressed to tank, settled and bottled shortly after with zero fining or filtration and no oak. The result, a complex balance between savoury and sweet savoury, liquorice spice, lavender and violets.
As the Portuguese do, savour for your offspring’s 21st birthday and once opened, enjoy shortly after. It’s a delicate wine after all….not a tawny. If not, enjoy now with a wedge of stinky blue.
As metnioed, in true Portuguese style, this is a wine made to age in bottle. however to drink now a freshca style with a salty cheese or rich chocolate desert is defintley the way foward...
