Lake Hayes wines reflect the land they’re grown on, with a style of winemaking that allows the fruit to express itself from vintage to vintage.
Lake Hayes wines are made in an early drinking style with a fresh, fruity appeal. They are young and lively, yet balanced and sophisticated.
WINEMAKING: Destemmed and cold soaked at 10ºC for five days. Fermented naturally with a top temperature of 32ºC. The wine was pressed off the grape skins when the tannins were deemed in balance.
MATURATION: In order to keep the lift in the primary fruit characteristics we deliberately kept a portion of the wine out of oak for maturation.
STYLE: Fruit forward primary fruit aromatics with soft tannins create a supple, generous, early drinking style.
TASTING NOTES: Opulent black Damson plums and berry fruit lead to a palate that displays juicy red fruit with velvety tannins and a soft profile to complement.
