"Coolart Road (D Block 100%) :: MV6 (100%). 10% whole bunches with destemmed portion all whole berries, and transferred to 5 tonne concrete tanks. Indigenous yeast ferment typically runs for 25-30 days with some plunging towards the end of the ferment. Following pressing, the wine was transferred to 30% new 228 litre French oak barrels for 11 months. Natural 100% malolactic fermentation before bottling unfined and with minimal filtration.
Coolart is the earliest picked of the Ten Minutes by Tractor vineyards and you’d expect this to be a beastly wine. But it’s not – rather, it’s joyously plump and ripe, a wine of red raspberry easygoing flavour, yet with tannins and grip. Great balance between the need for appealing fruit flavour and structure." - Ten Minutes By Tractor
