Ludo 2022 Mt Torrens Colluvium


Regular price $48.00

A blend of Moscato Giallo, Verdicchio, Viognier, Pinot Bianco from Mt Torrens, Adelaide Hills.
An aromatic and textural wine made into a blend from grapes growing in the same vineyard. The name colluvium refers to the wide variety of geology present in the vineyard. The co-planted Moscato Giallo, Viognier, and Pinot Bianco grapes were hand-harvested from the bottom of the slope (next to the Pinot Grigio). The grapes were filled into a French hogshead (!!!) partly destemmed party as whole bunches, filled with direct-pressed grape juice and locked up for 8 months. This Loire Valley technique, called "flotation" works based on semi-carbonic maceration and infusion (instead of extraction). The Verdicchio was harvested from the top of the slope, a section rich in quartzite and ironstone. The Verdicchio was direct-pressed, fermented and aged in a stainless tank. After racking and pressing off the Moscato component (after 8 months), it was blended with the Verdicchio and rested in two French barriques for 3 months. Bottled unfined, unfiltered with only 30 ppm SO2 added.
