The fruit for Lady Marmalade is sourced from hand tended blocks at themouth of the Goolwa River of the Fleurieu Peninsula. The harvested fruit is destemmed and crushed into stainless steel tanks with only the finest quality free run juice being chilled to 5 degrees celcius to preserve the expression of the fruit. Fermentation takes place in these tanks where the wine is allowed to complete a natural malo-lactic fermentation if it occurs. It is then racked off gross lees and cold settled prior to bottling This results in a wine with purity of fruit that is unpretentious and eminently satisfying to allow for regular indulgence.
