Tasting Notes:

VEGAN FRIENDLY!

Full-bodied, rather weighty wine, but one that stays within normal bounds. Black cherry fruit is tinged with mocha and baking spices, ending in a dusting of soft tannins.

Awards, Reviews, And Other Notes:

90 pts The Wine Advocate (LPB)
Blended of 48% Shiraz, 42% Grenache and 10% Mataro, the 2014 The Wild Ride has a medium garnet color and perfumed nose of potpourri, baking spices and raspberry leaves over a core of kirsch and mulberries. Medium-bodied, it delivers tons of spicy red berry preserves flavors with soft, plush tannins and appealing freshness.

Winemaker Notes:

All grapes are picked when physiologically ripe to obtain peak ripeness in terms of sugar and flavor. The grapes are de-stemmed into fermenters, pH is adjusted and fermentation takes place over 7-10 days at a temperature of approx 24 degrees centigrade. Plunging and or pumping over takes place 3 times a day. The wine is then pressed using a Basket Press. Juice is then transferred to tank or Barrel to undergo Malo-lactic fermentation. Each batch is kept separate to determine on a year by year basis the quality of the fruit from that vineyard. All wine is racked and returned to barrel 2 to 3 times during the 12 month period to ensure a clean wine that does not need any fining or filtration.
