MASSENA THE TWIGHLIGHT PATH PRIMITIVO BAROSSA 20
This smooth, soft, velvety Primitivo is proof that there's more to life than Shiraz in Australia's wine headquarters.
Massena Primitivo is made with hand picked grapes grown in the Barossa Valley's South Moppa area, a sub region of the valley. It was made with partially destemmed grapes and about 30% whole bunches in the fermentation with pump overs early in the winemaking process to extract colour and body followed by punch downs to gently extra flavour as the ferment came to a close.
Flavours here are all about bright red fresh berry fruit, such as raspberries, strawberries and notes of spice adding complexity.
Hand harvesting, indigenous ferments, whole bunch fermentation and long aging on lees are among the winemaking philosophy for this new range.
* Massena wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered.
