Rogues of the Resistance Prieto Picudo
Prieto Picudo 2019 – Riverland (Hot Climate, irrigated vines); fruit was balanced on the vine and had gorgeous hand grenade shape with instant colour, pretty dark fruits; Picked on flavour; 50% whole bunch; left on skins for 3 weeks; no fining added; Pressed with a basket press to older FO HH; Racked after Malo and put back to barrel; racked, settled and bottled.
In the vineyard vines have hand grenade bunches that looks real goooood. Really bright purple fruit flavours in the vineyard, picked around 14.3’. Rich blood plum colour that is heady in the glass. Gorgeous black cherry and intoxicatingly rich chocolate which gives the imbiber the impression of an opulent black forest gateau…. The END
