This week we are featuring the Tempranillo 2011 from 30 March, 2013
Established in 1997 the Galli Estate Plumpton vineyard occupies 35 hectares just 40 minutes northwest of Melbourne CBD. Along with the vineyard, there is a state of the art winery, cellar door and restaurant.
The region offers a generally cool climate with a relatively cool and dry growing season. Vintage takes place from late February through to April.
Galli Estate at Plumpton features rich red volcanic soil over clay loam, interspersed with rocky outcrops. The vineyard is on a north-south axis and the vine trellising uses vertical shoot positioning to increase exposure to sunlight.
The Plumpton area is best known for its Shiraz & Chardonnay, and Galli Estate Sunbury Shiraz & Chardonnay show the hallmark regional characters.
Other grapes such as Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauviginon, Merlot & more recently Fiano grow beautifully alongside.
