Ceravolo Shiraz 2011 (12x 750mL) Adelaide Plains, SA

Description:

OENOLOGY - SHIRAZ

Estate Grown – Single Vineyard

“The best wines are grown in the vineyard”

We live by that adage.

No fruit is introduced from outside our own Estate.

The grapes are harvested at night under optimum conditions and is in the winery before the sun comes up..

The fruit was crushed and de-stemmed in a roller crusher and all stalks removed.

We do not add SO2 prior to fermentation. Acid, if necessary, is adjusted by addition of Tartaric Acid.

A neutral but vigorous yeast is introduced to initiate the fermentation process.

An open fermentation system is utilized.

Fermentation takes place in stainless steel static fermenters where the must is pumped over twice per day and the temperature controlled to achieve a fermentation rate of 1.5 to 2 Baume per day.

When fermentation reaches 1.5 Baume the ferment is pressed and transferred to American Oak Hogsheads (300l) where primary fermentation is completed.

The wine is then racked and returned to French and American Oak Hogsheads to undergo malolactic fermentation naturally. This gives it good length and a more integrated palate.

Post malolactic fermentation SO2 is added at a rate of 40 ppm. The wine is then allowed to mature for approximately 12 months on oak prior to final blending, filtering and bottling. We use only 10 to 15% new oak each year, predominantly American with some French, re-using them for 4-5 years, so that oak does not dominate the varietal soft fruit Shiraz flavours.

Further maturation occurs post-bottling

Winery Profile

The 35th Parallel

The Ceravolo's came to Australia from Italy over fifty years ago from the Old World to a New World. It was no co-incidence that they came from the 35 N Parallel in Southern Italy to the 35 S Parallel in the South of Australia. We have been making wine and olive oil for hundreds of years. Over generations, we have combined Old World traditions with New World expertise.

Adelaide Plains

Our vineyards and olive grove lie just north of Adelaide, the heart of South Australia's wine growing regions, on the rich red terra rossa soils of the fertile Adelaide Plains.

Adelaide Hills

Our Home Estate is nestled amidst our cherry orchards and chestnut grove in the Adelaide Hills.

Adelaide Hills grapes were planted as early as 1839, but it was not until the early 1980's that there was a renaissance for vineyards and winemaking in this region.
