I’ve bottled the Cru Select Piazza and Toro. I’m pleased with both wines. Early tasting shows lots of promise. The Piazza is a golden straw colour. It’s off dry with an acidic bite in its youth. The acidity should subside as it ages. It’s full-bodied with complexity. I can’t wait to try it six months from now.
The Cru Select Toro is a medium bodied dry wine and ruby red in colour. It’s very sharp right now and one dimensional. This one definitely needs plenty of aging. I’m thinking at least a year. I’ll lbe sampling it on a monthly basis to see how it evolves.
The Selection Shiraz/Viognier is filtered and waiting to be bottled as is the Cru Select Trek. I’m hoping to get at these this weekend.
The Selection Pacifica is now crystal clear and ready for its second racking which I’ll be doing today. I’m also getting ready to put on two more today. I’ll be writing about them later but now it’s time to get at them.
