WINEMAKING NOTES

“Pemberley of Pemberton is situated in one of Australia’s premier cool climate grape growing regions, the Pemberton Wine Region, located 6kms from Pemberton, high on a ridge that supports some of the best grape growing land in Western Australia. The Pemberton region is often referred to as “”Karri Country”” after its magnificent Karri forests. Supporting these magnificent trees is karri loam a deep, red, fertile soil. The soil is too good and in order to prevent the vines from growing as huge as their famous neighbours, the karri trees, we have to stress the plants using techniques such as minimal or no irrigation and hard pruning. This results in grapes that are vibrant with flavours and alive with freshness when they are harvested for crushing from late February to late April each year.”

FOOD PAIRING

Delicious with all things Italian, pizza, meatballs and pasta! Also great with most meats just add a hint of roseamry, thyme or oregano!

TASTING NOTES

“This wine shows warmer and riper fruit characters which reflect the longer growing season. A hint of cinnamon and gentle blackberry flavours layer to form a soft round mouth feel. The palate reflects the aroma and is refined and elegant with a lingering finish. Smooth and ready now, but will develop further if cellared for 4-6 years or more. This wine has been gently matured in French oak for 12 months.
