Parco Hills Red 2021

A joint project with Erinn Klein from Ngeringa and made with fruit sourced from throughout "The Hills".
The genesis of the wine was to make a summery-vibed red with an emphasis of drinkability and fruitfulness... and in our humble opinion we certainly got there!
The resulting wine is all about Slip n' Slide. certainly no hard edges here folks! An easy glide of cherry-berried fruit. A little earthiness thanks to the Pinot fruit and a faint whisper of amaro or cherry pip bitterness pulls things into line...
Will do great things chilled when the suns out!

About Chilled Red Wine
Chilled reds can be a real treat because of the taste experiences that we gain by decreasing the serving temperature. Fruit character gains more tension, and the structure becomes more crisp (whether that be in acid or in tannin). Generally, the best candidates will have lower tannin levels, more fruit-forward profiles, more acid, and forthcoming aromatic profiles.
Depending on the winemaking style and the region’s climate, there are some grape varieties that can lend themselves to this more than others - think Gamay, Pinot Noir, new world Grenache, Zweigelt, Bläufrankisch - but there are no hard and fast rules. In terms of winemaking, a process like carbonic maceration (like you’ll find predominantly in Beaujolais, but increasingly throughout the world with a number of different varieties) lends itself to creating wines that can be excellent for chilling.
Lots of the red & white blends that you’ll spy in the Lo-Fi sections of our stores lend themselves beautifully to chilling, with the aromatic profiles of the white grapes complimenting the juicy fruit character of the red varieties.
