Did you know that we bottle our wines onsite at our winery? Our team recently braved the early chilly winter mornings to bottle just under 1800 dozen wines.
After the bottling truck had packed up and the boys enjoyed a well earned beer, we caught up with our winemaker Nick Toy, on what we should expect with these new additions to the Feathertop stable of wines.
2019 Fiano – “I think it’s our best Fiano yet with wonderful fruit power, texture and balance.”
2017 Nebbiolo – “A very limited release and you’ll need to be a Summit Cru Wine Club member to get hold of some as we made just enough volume to supply our November 2019 quarterly case allocation. The 2017 vintage was a cooler one so the reds have less fruit weight but are very elegant and structured with higher acid and ultra fine tannins. Best Nebbiolo from our vineyard yet and will age beautifully.”
2017 Sangiovese – “Sangio fans rejoice – this is the biggest volume yet for this variety and will be released in the upcoming Setpember Summit Cru Wine Club pack – another reason why it pays to be a member! It’s a much lighter wine than the 2016 vintage but like all the 2017 reds, it’s highly structured and age worthy. More in the style I would like every year – more Italian than Australian.
2017 Merlot – “A lighter style again but showing classic cool climate traits of elegance, structure and age-ability.”
