June Wedge Tales
We are starting to prune the vines today, this year the leaves have dropped fairly fast. I have started on pruning the roses and trimmed 75 so far and 170 more to go!
This month the Wine Special and a first release is, the fabulous 2016 North Face. This is by far the best cabernet merlot blend since the award wining 2008 North Face.
In your wine glass you will encounter upfront aromas of blackberries and cherries, the palate is rich and intense with generous fruit and soft tannins. The finish is long and lingering, giving a very enjoyable experience with your meal.
Despite the intensity of flavours the alc remains low only 12.5%, the way it should be in my opinion.
The 2016 North Face is a small production, we suspect it will sell fast.

Since most of the wine making start’s in the vineyard, in was imperative to choose a site that would offer as much complexity and diversity as possible. Single vineyard wines are more at the mercy to their terroire than regional blend. To preserve the single vineyard characteristic at Wedgetail we employed a minimalist approach to wine making, which means less interference that leads to less additives, less pumping and filtering. The purity of the fruit is blended for an absolute delectation.
