PETER THOMPSON WINES
2018 LIGHT DRY RED
Grapes were destemmed and lightly crushed together. They were given 3 days cold soak and allowed to naturally ferment slowly at quite a cool temperature for further 3 days.
They were then pressed off and only the very light pressings were added back before being fermented to dryness
Alcohol 13.4 %
Sugar 3.0 g/l
COLOUR - Medium crimson; very bright and eye catching
NOSE - Lifted fruity but not sweet more savoury almost meaty.
PALATE - Succulent and juicy shiraz. Dry savoury finish.
Shiraz and merlot grapes treated as though we were making a Pinot Noir. By not having stalks there’s no green flavours just succulent red berry fruit.
Cool fermentation has given soft round tannins that respond kindly to the wine being served slightly chilled.
