Baw Baw Red

  • Baw Baw Red

    Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

    50% Cabernet, 40% Merlot, 10% Riesling. The Cabernet and Merlot were picked early and underwent a short eight day maceration on skins after being destemmed, with a portion of direct pressed added to keep the cap wet. The Riesling component spent 6 weeks on skins and after being pressed was added to the red ferment. The wine remained in stainless steel tanks on full lees. With notes of raspberry and cassis this light red is almost like pinot and does well either chilled or at room temperature. Un-fined & unfiltered 30ppm 2 weeks before bottling at the final racking.
