2021 Touriga/Cabernet Tasting Notes
Region: McLaren Vale
Ivybrook has small blocks of Touriga and Cabernet grafted onto Shiraz.
The vineyard is managed all by hand using natural farming practices.
The grapes from our vineyard are all handpicked in the early morning and fermented in a half tonne fermenters where it was hand plunged 2-3 times daily.
10% whole bunch, wild indigenous ferment, completely natural wine aged in French oak for 9 months before bottling. Minimal fining and filtration are used.
Bursting perfume of violets and mulberry with eucalypt and mint. Blackcurrants lead on to the palete with nice medium weight and a lovely silky texture. Drink it now.
