2017 Harvest looking good
The 2017 harvest is underway at the Angelicus vineyard and this year we are excited to be making some wine in some new 800 litre amphora. Using these specialist Italian terracotta vessels for some of our winemaking it will enhance the flavours and textures of the fruit from our terrific site.
We have experimented in previous, earlier vintages with using terracotta urns for ferment which have given those wines some textural and flavour intensity. So now we believe it is time to invest in the amphorae for the 2017 wines.
