2012 Pondalowie Vineyard Blend Shiraz Cabernet Tempranillo
Dominic & Krystina Morris established the 10ha vineyard in 1997 at Bridgewater on Loddon after having spent many years winemaking around the World, including France & Portugal.
The vineyard is planted to Shiraz, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Viognier and Malbec. Pondalowie also sources a small amount of premium fruit from Heathcote.
Winemaking notes: The varietal proportions in this wine may change from year to year but the concept of producing an aromatically interesting, medium bodied, easy drinking wine remains consistent. The 2012 sees a return to our traditional combination of Shiraz, Cabernet and Tempranillo. The varieties are co-fermented (a technique learned from Dominic’s Portuguese experience) to enhance the marriage of varietal flavours and produce a balanced wine. Drink now and over the next 5 years.
