DILWORTH & ALLAIN - 'FRANKLINFORD' DOLCETTO 2021
The Franklinford Dolcetto offers aromas of cooked berries and plums along with liquorice and aniseed. It is a full bodied, powerful wine that is fruit driven with a floral lift, along with spice, game meat and alpine herb characters. The acidity, fruit profile and tannin all sit very nicely together leaving a lasting impression.
ORIGIN Macedon Ranges, Australia
MAKER Dilworth & Allain
"Koo de food" A blend of Macedon Ranges Pinot Noir (60%) and Western Victorian Chardonnay (40%). In various forms, we have been producing a blend of this nature since 2017. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are 2 varieties which always create so much interest and discussion. We love the way they work together, a real family connection!
The two varieties were fermented separately and then blended. The Chardonnay was fermented in tank and the Pinot Noir was fermented with a small amount of whole bunch. Elevage was in a 50/50 mix of French barriques and tank. Bottled in late January unfined, unfiltered, with no other additives other than a small amount of Sulphur Dioxide before ferment and before bottling.
