2017 Travis Tausend Sitting In A Tree
Special times for Travis Tausend. This is the first vintage that all the wine has been made in his own shed in the Adelaide Hills. All the fruit comes from a single vineyard. Notes by Travis..: Sitting in a tree is from the north west facing Merlot vineyard at the very north of the property. Because of the aspect of the slope the Merlot is just able to ripen before it is hand picked. With some whole bunches added to the bottom of the open fermenter the rest of the fruit is hand destemmed. After 3 weeks fermentation on skins the wine is hand pressed to 225L barrels before being bottled in October with no sulphur.
