6 x 2023 Rose

One of the first picks of the season saw the handpicked pinot noir fruit make it’s way to the winery on relatively cool Thursday afternoon. From this point we gently pressed the whole bunch proportion and left it on skins for 5 hours as to extract the right amount colour, and flavour. We cold settled in small insulated tanks, and then racked the juice into another tank but ensured that we left some solid proportions behind as to allow the final wine to show some rounded textural elements. Whils we used a particular strain of yeast that is known for producing aromatics that the punters love to see with rose, think tangelo, strawberries and watermelon. We had some extra juice come in with our Sangiovese later on during the season, and this made its way to seasoned french oak barriques. This component was fermented on partial solids and then went through secondary fermentation as to round out the acidity that 2023 was characterised by due to the cooler than normal ripening conditions. Upon completion both batches were blended to together, clarified using only suitably vegan products.

6 x 2021 Montepulciano

 

Our 2021 vintage was outstanding, and this wine is a prime example of how oak can add subtle complexity without overshadowing the ultimate hero at hand, the pure fruit. Fermented in open top fermenters this wine saw nearly two weeks on skins. It’s bold without being brash.  Cherries wild strawberries vanilla and savoury herbs encompass the palate and nose. The tannins are chewy yet refined. A Fantastic uncomplicated example of what we are excited and proud to present as a newcomer to the Feathertop Family.
