This week we are featuring the Tempranillo 2011 from 30 March, 2013
Galli Estate was the vision of Tuscan born Lorenzo Galli who came to Australia in the 1950’s. It was moving full circle for Lorenzo, whose family had made wine in Italy for generations.
Two vineyard sites were carefully selected, in the Heathcote and Sunbury wine regions of Victoria. Each was planted with grape varieties that ideally suited their individual soils and climate.
The rich red volcanic soils of Sunbury and the famous Cambrian soils of Heathcote were fundamental to Lorenzo’s dream. They are the key to wines that honestly reflect their origins and bring pleasure to those that share them.
Galli adopts principles of organinc viticulture through the use of fertigation, natural fertilisers & minimal spraying across both our vineyards. This together with our utilisation of 100% recycled water for the Sunbury vineyard reinforces our commitment to sustainable vineyard practices.
These practices are also carried out in the winery with a more minimal approach to the winemaking through the adaptation of traditional methods focused on the use of indigenous yeasts. We also practice racking on the new moon & minimal filtration for our small batch bespoke clonal selection of Premium & Riserva wines.
Galli Estate Winery boasts an impressive Cellar Door & Restaurant complex. The striking steel arched building offers sweeping views over the vines, and is home to one of the best restaurants in the area.
The intimate Cellar Door presents the ideal opportunity to taste the impressive range of Galli Estate wines. The friendly knowledgeable staff will be pleased to advise you on your wine choices.
