Food Pairings for Austral Limited Release
•Grapes were sorted with a new grape receiving system and MOG (materials other than grapes) separation system that gets fruit to the fermenters in a more gentle and pure manner, allowing for better varietal expression and softer mouthfeel. • Ripe grapes were destemmed, crushed and inoculated with a variety of yeasts for maximum complexity. • Daily gentle pumpovers were used to extract optimal flavor and color and minimize harsh tannins. The pumpovers can vary by block, tank and day of fermentation. Every ferment is tasted every day to evaluate the evolution of the tannins, modify extraction techniques and find the right moment to drain the wine off of its skins.
This Southern Rhone-style blend presents a lovely fusion of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre. Layered flavors of dark fruit greet the palate and finishes with a soft and supple mouth-feel. Try this wine with your next Italian dinner!
Notes: Aged in 100% neutral oak barrels for 15 months.
