The 2011 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.

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.
