Description

Information:

Domaine Tournon

In the south-east of the Australian continent, the state of Victoria offers numerous different climates, alternating between dry periods and rainy seasons. Other singularities too: kangaroos move around in groups of 200 in the vines, cockatoos are attracted by the red grapes, frequent fires, etc. Something had to be done: rigorous water management, netting to protect the vines… There is no doubt that Australia is another world!


Winemaking:

The grapes are harvested at maturity, avoiding over maturation.

The grapes are destemmed and then they ferment in cement or stainless steel tanks. Maceration lasts from 2 to 3 weeks in order to allow the tannins extraction that provides a good ageing potential to the wine.

The wine is entirely aged in cement or stainless steel tanks and it is bottled 12 months later.
