Vintage Conditions

Vintage 2015 can be best described as having a mild growing season. Spring was dry with temperatures slightly warmer than average and summer temperatures were average to below average for the entire time. Most importantly there were no days of extreme hot weather which is ideal for flavour development. There was a period in late January of high humidity, but careful management of the vines kept the fruit free from disease. The continuing consistent warm days, enabled the vines to ripen the fruit at a consistent rate. This meant there was a reduced need for irrigation which resulted in a very strong vintage for all varieties. Both white wines and red wines showed fantastic depth of flavour and finesse with the added bonus being our Reds having intense colour and tannins.

One to watch!

Tasting Notes

It is believed that the Muscat grape has been growing in Europe for over two thousand years. Our light delicate fortified Muscat is made in a style more commonly seen in some sweet European wine styles.

In keeping with the traditional earlier harvested style, our pale gold BdV Muscat is highly aromatic, has lovely floral hints of rose and musk, and a delicately light, yet sweet palate with lingering flavours of turkish delight. We have produced only a small quantity of this most refreshing sticky.

Winemaking

Produced from the same Brown Muscat (Muscat a Petit Grains Rouge), used for more traditional Rutherglen Muscat styles. The fruit for this wine was harvested a month early, before intense raisining had commenced. This enabled us to maintain a fresh fruity flavour profile. To enhance and promote the delicate nature of the varietal characters at this lower level of ripeness, only the lightest pressed juice was selected.

This was fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel, with a highly aromatic yeast. Once the wine had fermented to the required level of residual sweetness, it was fortified by the addition of very clean and very neutral distilled grape spirit to produce a final alcoholic strength of 14.6%
