About
Following a manual harvest of Freisa grapes, in the cellar the grapes are destemmed and pressed. This is followed by a spontaneous fermentation in large concrete tanks, at a temperature between 22°C and 28°c for about 12 days. This is followed by a soft pressing and ageing into large oak barrels for 10 months. Then 4 months of aging in bottle.

Gary Walsh, The WineFront

Here’s a pretty bold expression of the grape. Dark cherry, raspberry, black liquorice, a dried flower top note. Plenty of dark fruit flavour, amaro herbs, silty tannin and a distinct bitterness (which I love). Finish is firm and laced with chicory/radicchio. It’s rugged, but interesting.
