GRAPEGROWER & WINEMAKER


Martin Pfeiffer, Josh Pfeiffer & Michael Corbett

FRUIT SOURCE

This wine is made up of Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache, with the majority grown here on our vineyards surrounding our Cellar Door at Whistler. We have been running our vineyard using organic practices since August 2013, and biodynamic practices since July 2017.

WINE MAKING

The Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache were all harvested separately, when each variety was at optimum ripeness. All three varieties were destemmed in the vineyard, and whole berry, natural fermentation was allowed to commence. Fermentation took place in old concrete fermenters and the ferments were foot stomped, twice daily, to minimise extraction. Once each variety reached dryness, they were basket pressed and put to old French oak for 4 months. Each variety was kept separate until it was blended just prior to bottling. No fining agents were used, so this wine is Vegan friendly.

THE WINE

This wine is designed to be an easy drinking red wine that over delivers for the price. The Shiraz component gives the wine a nice blue fruit character and good depth of flavour, the Mataro give the wine structure and an earthy character, while the Grenache shows plenty of juicy red fruits. This is the perfect BBQ wine, and works extremely well chilled in warmer weather.

TECHNICAL DATA
pH: 3.50 T.A.: 6 g/l Alcohol: 13.5%

RECOMMENDED CELLARING
Drink it now, but if you like more secondary characters, it will age gracefully up to 2024.
