Graciano is a late ripening grape with exceptional ability to retain remarkable natural acidity. Low yielding and vulnerable to mildew, the Graciano vine needs a lot of care and tends to thrive in warmer, drier climes. Tscharke established their Graciano plantings to a superior site at Stonewell, its parched clay soils are swept by invigorating winds which maintain healthy dry canopies. Grapes are all picked by hand and destemmed into open fermenters, musts are inoculated and vinified to complete dryness at warmer temperatures 22ºC to 25ºC. Batches are pressed into a selection of French oak hogsheads and puncheons for a year's maturation. Alcohol 14.5%
