Cabernet/ Mataro/ Syrah.
Intrigue, how will three big bold Barossa heavy weights look made in White Gate's style?
100% whole berry across all ferments, soft punch downs to keep the cap moist during ferment, no pump overs, extremely soft handling. All early picks, bar the Mataro that was out to hang till 13.5 Be to warn off any 'greenness'.
The weight here is quite light, all parcels were fermented, pressed and put to barrel separately, and blended pre-bottle.
Interestingly, each grape's personality is on show, not hidden behind oak nor alcohol. It's fascinating how pretty these three Barossa varieties look picked early.
Who'd think Cab/Mataro/Syrah could look so soft & pretty?
