The Chalmers Aglianico is vibrant, showing earthy cherry, aromatic spice and delicate perfume on the nose. The balanced, savoury, light-medium bodied palate shows subtle fruitcake spices, herbal notes and candied orange rind with a pleasant mouth-watering acidity and the fine, smooth, building tannins you would expect of the variety. An elegant and structured wine with excellent potential for long ageing.

Winemaking

Viticulture East-west oriented rows trellised on a single unilateral cordon VSP system at 4500 vines/ha. East facing sloped site from 200-225 elevation. Complex rocky Cambrian terrain including dolerite, ironstone, green basalt and jasper with flecks of limestone. A warm and windy site with low disease pressure, favourable ripening conditions and moderate annual rainfall (550mm). Hand pruned to 6 x one bud spurs in winter keeping foliage compact and yields low. Very late-ripening, hand picked, usually in April. Vinification Hand picked fruit is 100% destemmed and wild fermented in open fermenters. Fermentation typically goes for 20 days. The wine is then pressed and matured in 90% old and 10% new French barriques. Malolactic fermentation is natural. The wine is bottled without fining and little or no filtration after about 18 months and cellared for a further 2 years or more before release depending on the vintage.

Our Expert Food Recommendation

A great match with medium weight, rich dishes like confit duck or wild mushroom and truffle pasta.
