2018 Is Sex Colbinabbin Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso - Case of 12
Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso! Yeah!
Originating in Friuli, Refosco makes a spicy, dark fruited and medium weighted wine. So, so good with pizza or pasta. Fine, grippy tannin and soft fruit make it cuddly. Rusty iron mineralty from Colbinabbin's soils.
From the Chalmers family vineyard in Colbinabbin’s.
Picked when favours and tannins are bright and ripe respectively.
10 or so days maceration in closed top fermenter, regular pump-overs.
Settled in stainless and then 12 months in very old barrique without sulphur.
Bottled Feb 2019 with small sulphur addition.
