Hither & Yon Nero d’Avola 750ml (McLaren Vale, SA)
The fruit was handpicked in the early morning of April 1 and delivered to the winery where it was then gently de-stemmed and crushed into open top fermenters. A cold soak took place for 5 days, with gentle hand plunging taking place 3 times per day. Fermentation was for 8 days, with a high portion of whole berries being retained, then lightly pressed to tank where the free run juice and pressings were combined Once the wine was dry, it was sent to 6-7 year old French barriques, all of the process to retain vineyard and fruit freshness. A light screen filtration, then bottling; completing the process on October 17, 2016.
