Red Wine | LANGHORNE CREEK
The wines are destemmed, foot crushed and fermented separately by wild yeast in small open top fermenters, hand plunged, and macerated for an average of 2 to 3 weeks. It is then pressed directly into old French puncheons where natural mlf takes place. The wine is then sulphured and left on its lees until the end of maturation when it is racked by gravity. No additives are used in its production except minimal sulphur dioxide.

Tasting Notes


Winefront , Campbell Mattinson - Nov 2014

This is now the flagship of the Casa Freschi range. It’s made from the best 15% of nebbiolo grown on the estate. It's an elegant wine of quiet insistence. It’s light in colour, carries flavour of aniseed, red cherry, dust and dried herbs, and saves its best for the finish, as nebbiolo is so adept at doing. There’s a tarry, nutty character here too, and tips of mint. Tannin lingers beautifully.
