2013 Delamere Cuvée
2013 was something of a rollercoaster with some very warm, dry days and rain before vintage but this all lead to some intense flavours in the fruit and high levels of complexity. We received a healthy yield from our vineyard in 2013, the older vines coping very well with the temperatures and water availability.
Gentle whole bunch pressing of the fruit and blended whilst still juice, the Cuvée 2013 is an elegant wine representing some excellent characteristics of the vintage. This year allowed us to use a large proportion of solids during fermentation to give extra depth and complexity. Our sparkling wines are produced traditionally with the 2013 spending three years on lees before release.
Rich and complex, this wine opens with leatherwood honey and develops through the pallet, with stone fruits and fine line of minerality, a lingering, and complex finish.
And In its youth, this wine is served best with a selection of fresh Tasmanian Seafood. With age, the Cuvee is best accompanied with Pekin Duck, spatchcock or poached quail eggs.
