Southbrook Vineyards - 2019 Whimsy Zweigelt Organic
All grapes were hand sorted. 50% were kept as whole clusters for fermentation while the remainder was destemmed. Fermentation occurred in a 5 tonne Stainless steel fermenter using natural yeasts. After 20 days maceration time, the wine was pressed to age for 6 months in neutral oak barrels. No additives or fining agents were used and a minimal 45ppm SO2 was added to this unfiltered wine.
The wine shows a lively, vibrant purple colour with aromas of blueberry, dark cherries, black plums and spice. The palate is dry, light and refreshing, delivering lingering flavours of cacao and dark cherries.
