After Five Wine Co. Montepulciano
A powerful wine that delivers a crunchy lively textural palate showing fine tannin that is very consistent across the palate and natural acidity that drags fruit to the very back of the palate, all the elements that this variety delivers.
fter 10 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, the poly was topped and was left on skins for 3 months before pressing. Both underwent malo-lactic fermentation. The wine was then left on light lees to mature for 5 months before racking, the wine was then transferred back to the same oak and matured for another 12 months.
