Crushed, de-stemmed and then pressed using a membrane press. The ferment was kept slow and cool to retain all the natural flavours and aromatic qualities. The juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at a cool temperature to retain all the natural flavours and aromatic qualities. The wine was blended, clarified, filtered and then bottled soon afterwards so the wine was a true expression of the grape/ terroir from which it was made.
Pale straw in colour. The nose has hints of vibrant tropical aromas. Passionfruit characters are vibrant on the pallet, with a subtle grassy flavour in the background. There is a lovely crisp and clean mouthfeel with balanced citrus fruits and natural acidity.
Cool Woods range of wines are produced by Thorn-Clarke winery in the Barossa, South Australia. The name Cool Woods was inspired by the rolling hills and scattered ‘big gums’ at their Angaston vineyard. These hills were once heavily forested with eucalypt, settlement of the region in the mid 1800’s resulted in clearing of large grazing properties by the early settlers – today some of the gums still standing on our property are over 200 years old. Standing alongside the vineyard, these old trees would have seen some changes over the years – from early settlers arriving, to a working dairy and now a premium cool climate winery. Cool Woods wines are produced with fruit from this Eden Valley vineyard, along with grapes sourced from other South Australian winemaking regions. Combining their own fruit with grapes from other regions ensures that each vintage displays consistency, fantastic fruit qualities along with good varietal character and acid structure – ensuring the whites are crisp and clean, and the reds full of flavour and well balanced.
