A Rioja inspired red blend, made from our two Estate grown Spanish varietals; Tempranillo and Graciano. This year's blend is 63% Graciano, 37% Tempranillo. The result is a full-bodied red combining cherry and spice aromas with savoury and earthy characteristics. The palate is well structured with ample tannin and acid to age for many years.
Woody Nook Wines G& T 2020 was made from two separately fermented parcels of Estate grown fruit; 6.769 tonnes of Tempranillo hand-picked on the 20th February, 2020 at 13.6° baume and 2.304 tonnes of Graciano hand-picked on the 26th March, 2020 at 13.4° baume. The Tempranillo was fermented for seven days on skins across three separate open fermenters with daily pump overs before pressing to tank to complete ma lo-lactic fermentation (MLF) then maturation in 29 second-use barriques for eighteen months. The Graciano was fermented on skins for seven days in small-batch 1 tonne bins with daily hand plunging, inoculated with EnartisFerm ES488 yeast before pressing to new Hungarian (Kadar) and second-use French oak barriques for MLF and eighteen months maturation. The wines were then blended and cross-flow filtered before sterile filtration to bottle in July 2021.
