Quick Overview

Around 10% by weight of whole bunch fruit is added to the ferment to add complexity and tannin structure. The Primitivo, Mataro and Graciano were all aged in seasoned barrels and then blended and settled before bottling unfiltered and unfined. Showing rich and fruity blackberry flavours, interwoven with deep roasted Middle Eastern spices and tobacco leaf smokiness. A ripe black cherry palate shows black pepper spices across a bright and fresh palate, finishing clean with firm but ripe tannins

Product Description

Showing bright fruit at an early ripeness level, the Primitivo was handpicked and around 30% by weight of whole bunch fruit is added to the ferment to add complexity and lifted aromatics. The Primitivo was aged in tank to retain its freshness, whilst the Mataro and Graciano were both aged without sulphur in seasoned barrels to soften and age and bring some complimentary secondary characters. The individual cuvée's were then blended and bottled unfiltered and unfined.

The Wine: Weighing in at 13.5% alcohol, this blend is zippy and fresh, with the sour cherry brightness complemented by some chalky stalk tannin and a clean fresh finish. The Twilight Path is best enjoyed as a youthful wine to while away a balmy autumn evening.

Cellaring: Up to seven years

"A 66/27/7% estate-grown blend of primitivo (aka zinfandel), mataro and graciano, wild-fermented, the primitivo with 30% whole bunches, and unoaked. Bright colour; a resoundingly fresh sunburst of red and purple fruits, the mouthfeel supple and smooth. Drink asap, although it won't die any time soon." 95 points, Halliday Wine Companion 2018
