Kissing Bridge Chardonnay 2012

 

In this fast paced changing world, it is nice to know that some things just stay the same. With each new vintage we search for the best wines from throughout Australia to ensure that the Kissing Bridge Cabernet Merlot you drink this year, will be the same outstanding

wine for each year to come.

Viticulture

The growing season delivered typical crop levels and full flavoured fruit. A dry summer and restrictedwater to most regions produced small berries resulting in concentrated rich fl vours.

winemakerís comments

Our aim with Chardonnay is to produce a fruit driven style. There is some oak there - but itís in the background adding depth and structure to the palate. Enjoy the aroma of apple, cinnamon spice and tropical fruit undertones with a mid weight palate of nectarines and tropical fruit salad. A refreshing acid crispness gives the wine a lovely finish.

Kissing Bridge Cabernet Merlot is a full fl avoured blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The Cabernet gives the wine its structure and full rich fl avour while the Merlot gives the wine a juicy, long palate. Enjoy the blackberry and cedar like aroma of the wine with grilled

meats, pasta and good cheese.

Kissing Bridge Moscato 2012

 

What is Moscato?

Moscato is the Italian word for Muscat. The Muscat of Alexandria grape, commonly known as Gordo Blanco in Australia, is the grape used in Kissing Bridge Moscato. A variety that loves the warm weather and is perfectly suited to the warm inland climates in the Murray Darling region.

The Moscato style originated in the Asti region of northern Italy. Moscato DíAsti wines are slightly fi zzy with a lower alcohol. The wines are released soon after vintage to preserve their naturally fresh character.

 

winemakerís comments

The key to making Moscato is to capture the natural fruity,spice aroma and fl avour of the Muscat grape. The grapes are crushed and pressed quickly then the clarifi ed juice is put in a pressurized fermenter. During fermentation the carbon dioxide is captured giving the wine its frizzante character. The ferment is stopped early leaving the grapes natural sugar and fl avour intensity as the wineís key feature.
