We have had quite a few requests for a ‘soft white’ wine style. Enquiring further, we find many customers mean by this a light (in acid terms), semi-sweet wine.
Allegro – another Italian musical term, this time meaning lively – is the name we have given to this style (which will vary in tone from season to season).
Greco and Picolit – both from the Estate – combine well to create this first release.
(The Greco block has, after an experimental period, now been re-converted to Barbera).
The fruit was separately crushed, pressed, cold settled and the clear juice separated from the solids by racking. The juice was fermented – also separately – at cool temperatures in stainless steel, with the Picolit ferment ferment stopped to permit retained sweetness. The wines were then stabilized and clarified prior to bottling in December 2013.
Busting with honeysuckle, peach and red apple, this Allegro is best enjoyed chilled or on ice, in the company of white meat dishes like roast pork with sweet apple sauce. But the wine is equally at home as an aperitif with cheese and crackers!
