The 2016 vintage was preceded by a warm, dry spring that saw perfect fruit set and even ripening across all varieties. This continued into the harvest period with only one rain event in February that refreshed the vines just prior to picking. The Riverland area, in the heartland of South Australia’s vineyard regions, with its sandy loam over limestone soils, warm sunny days and cool clear nights is the perfect place to grow the Muscat varieties that go into making our Nine Vines Moscato.
As the sun rose in the cool of dawn in late February our harvesters began to carefully coax the grapes from the vines. Immediately transferred to the winery the juice was extracted using modern membrane tank presses. Chilled and allowed to settle prior to racking the clear juice from the pulp and inoculation with a carefully selected yeast strain. The transformation of juice to wine occurred under slow, cool, controlled conditions to preserve the vibrant fruit fl avours of the fi nished wine.
