Winery/Brand: Salena


Ruby red colour this 5yo wine is drinking very well. The aromas are of mulberry and spice with hints of licorice and pepper. The mid-weight palate still shows dark fruit and is smooth with fine grained silky tannins. Ideal with mid-week pizza and pasta.

Alc/Vol : 14.4% pH : 3.40 Total Acid : 6.6g/L Residual Sugar : 0.7 g/L



The Story

Our Winery is an N.O.P Certified Organic Winemaker and Bottler. This ensures the quality control process and organic status of the fruit and wine in maintained from the vineyard to the bottle. The wine shows an abundance of generous fruit characters and has soft, yet full bodied flavours that linger on and on. Oak maturation has further complexed the wine, adding a supporting rather than a dominating role. .

Vintage Conditions: Early vine growth was strong with cool conditions experienced and ample soil moisture available. Extra water allocation in the Riverland district was a bonus and most vignerons experienced good flowering despite the record heat-wave experienced in November. This heat-wave however, was moderated by significant rainfall in the latter half of the month. Vintage itself saw warm but not extreme temperatures from January onwards. Slightly warmer night time temperatures combined with the dry conditions, meant an early start to harvesting, but unlike other recent vintages, most vineyards were in great health and with good canopy balance.
