Story

The life of the party, the instigator of frivolity, the undying entertainer. A modern-day jester gathers friends around regularly to eat and drink well, and much like their medieval predecessors, reminds us that life shouldn’t be taken too seriously.

Tasting Note

Plum, blackberry and spice notes are carried over to the palate, meeting with dark and red cherries. The soft tannin structure is harmoniously supportive of the medium bodied palate. Gentle acidity maintains balance throughout as the wine evokes nuances of fine herbs on the finish.

Winemaking

Destemmed and crushed for fermentation in 8 tonne potter fermenters with twice daily pump overs, and larger vinomatics under a gentle extraction regime. Temperatures were kept cool, between 20 and 24˚C to retain fruit vibrancy and ensure a soft tannin structure. The ferment was pressed off at approximately 1 Baume to finish in stainless steel tank, before natural malolactic fermentation and maturation in 75% French and 25% American Oak Hogs Head Barrels for 14 months. The wine is unfined and underwent light filtration prior to bottling.

Vineyard

Lopresti Ridgehaven Vineyard- Hahn Road, Sellicks Hill, McLaren Vale.

Located at the southern end of McLaren Vale between Sellicks Hill and Willunga on the foothills of the Mount Lofty Ranges. The site is defined by heavy clay loam soils with shattered gravel throughout the profile, over Christies Beach formation. A north-westerly aspect captures ample sunlight and ensures ripening whilst the warmth of the site garners concentration and plush tannin maturity in the fruit.
