A Spanish grape variety Pedro Ximenez does exceptionally well in the vine-growing region of the Swan Valley. This award winning
organic wine began existence as grapes that were hand thinned at the green berry stage so that the vine can sun-ripen its remaining grapes to raisins of very high sugar levels, without irrigation.
Pedro Ximenez is available in 375 mL bottles and in bulk cubes. Buy their beautiful fortified style wines from their Wine Shop today.
Very ripe organic grapes are crushed, de-stemmed prior to being pumped to the ferment tank.
The ferment starts with natural yeasts and continues at 20C until the ferment has proceeded through about 3 Be'.
The skins are drained and basket pressed, the juice returned to an open fermenter under the verandah. The ferment continues at 25C until the wine-maker determines it is the correct time to fortify the wine with his organic brandy spirit. Once the ferment has stopped the wine is pumped to oak hogsheads for underground cellaring and maturation. After four summers the wine is bottled and sealed with natural cork.
This wine has alcohol added and is about 17% alcohol. Some preservatives in the way of sulphites are added. It is clarified and filtered prior to bottling. Harris recommends to consume within one month after opening.
