Travis Tausend Agori Red 2021
Travis Tausend we first met when he was manning the helm of Høst Wine Imports, where he brought some of the most esoteric and intriguing wines into the country, capturing the imagination of drinkers nationwide.
Notes from Trav:
Our red this year is made etirely out of shiraz. The vineyard is called ‘top range’ and is situated at the top of a north west facing valley and the southern end of the Adelaide Hills. The soils here are fairly common ridge top soils for this area with some iron stone and quartz deposits in loamy clay with a sandstone bed-rock.
We de-stemmed about half of the fruit and then carbonically macerated the rest. At the end of ferment the destemmed fruit went to barrel while the carbonic stu stayed in stainless. The wine was blended at the end of August and bottled early september. The style is medium bodied with fresh crisp acid and powdery tannin. Glou!
