2020 Chouette Wine Suzy Rouge
Chouette Wine is Tom Daniel, a second generation Swan Valley Winemaker.
Tom champions the heritage vineyards in the valley, many of which have been pulled out over the years. Notes from Tom:
A blend of bright & very-early-picked Grenache grown in dense clay in Millendon, & riper dry-grown Grenache from sandstone, gravely & coffee rock foothills soils. Basket pressed, a blend of stainless and old French oak maturation. Gentle but serious pizza-wine tannin, but just so mega drinkable. Handles Chilling well. Medium bodied with bright red fruit zing in an appealing modern Swan Valley crunchy ‘house wine’ style. Unfined and unfiltered.
