Windy Peak wines are made at De Bortoli’s Dixon’s Creek winery from carefully selected fruit grown in the Yarra Valley, King Valley and other regions. The wines are generous in flavour with fine grained texture, perfect for bringing out the best in food.
Fruit for this blend is grown mainly in Dixons Creek, Tarrawarra and Yarra Glen.The grapes are both hand and machine harvested with a percentage of the hand harvested used for whole bunch inclusion. A combination of winemaking techniques are used to produce a final blend with complexity and balance. These include cold maceration prior to fermentation, inclusion of whole bunches and warm fermentation at 30˚C to 32˚C. Minimal handling and filtration is adopted to preserve fruit flavour.
Textural, elegant flavours of cherry and strawberry. Soft tannins, medium weight, quite a plump style.
