Product Description

Tasting notes
De Aguja (De-uh-gook-uh) means “little needles’ in Spanish and refers to the lively, slightly spritzy style of this delicious wine. Verdelho fruit gives this wine its fresh tropical fruit aromas and full and lingering citrus flavours. The perfect combination of style and substance for any occasion!
Viticultural notes
The Verdelho fruit for this De Aguja was grown at selected vineyards in the Ballandean district of the Granite Belt. The Granite Belt is situated on the Great Dividing Range 850m above sea level and 95km inland from the coast. The Winters are cold and frosty and Summers warm producing a continental climate. Most of the region’s rainfall comes in the growing season feeding the buds and shoots. The soil is largely composed of granite, somewhat on the acidic side and is very free draining.
Winemaking notes
The key to making a De Aguja style wine is to stop the ferment just prior to it finishing so that some of the grape’s natural sugar and flavour intensity is retained. In addition, when bottling the wine we capture some of the naturally occurring Carbon Dioxide created during the winemaking process in order to give the wine its slightly spritzy style.
