Wine Summary Image

The quality of the fruit lent itself to extended skin contact for optimum extraction of colour, so after crushing the fruit was fermented on skins in temperature-controlled stainless steel for between ten and twelve days. The depth of fruit flavour and bold tannin structure achieved meant that from the beginning this wine was built to last. Fermentation was completed in an assortment of oak and stainless steel, with French and American oak staves, hogshead and barriques used. Individual parcels of wine remained in wood for up to 14 months.

Early vine growth was strong with cool conditions experienced and ample soil moisture available. Extra water allocation in the Riverland district was a bonus and most vignerons experienced good flowering despite the record heat-wave experienced in November. This heat-wave however, was moderated by

significant rainfall in the latter half of the month. Vintage itself saw warm but not extreme temperatures from January onwards. Slightly warmer night time temperatures combined with the dry conditions, meant an early start to harvesting, but unlike other recent vintages, most vineyards were in great health and with good canopy balance.

Winery Profile

Salena Estate is owned by Bob and Sylvia Franchitto. Although a relatively young wine company, their first vintage was produced only as recently as 1998.

Salena Estate firmly believe in the old winemaker’s maxim that ‘the making of good wine starts in the vineyard’. To achieve consistently high quality fruit, the latest pruning, canopy management and other vineyard practises are undertaken to ensure the best possible varietal expression in the harvest. Vineyard plantings are of fairly significant size, at 208 hectares (520 acres). Varieties grown include Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Chardonnay, Colombard, Semillon and Riesling.Salena Estate is also certified as an organic processor, enabling to satisfy demand in an exciting new segment of the wine market.“Salena Estate – A family ownded company making premium wines that redefine the standards for quality and value”
