Serafino Terremoto Syrah
Terremoto Syrah captures the essence of McLaren Vale. The wine is fruit driven, bursting with rich dark fruit characters of blackberries, mulberries and blueberries while being balanced with tight fine grain tannins. The wine is fresh with textures and layers of flavour. The generosity of fruit and the seamless integration of oak and tannin ensures the mouthfeel is vibrant, long and elegant. The grapes for Terremoto were destemmed leaving a high proportion of whole berries in the must, cold soaked for 2 days and inoculated with a yeast culture . The wine was fermented in a 4 tonne open fermenter for 8 days. During that time, the wine was pumped over twice a day. The wine remained on skins for a further 10 days before pressing to 300L oak barrels The Serafino story began in 1964 when Steve (Serafino) Maglieri arrived in Australia from Italy as a passionate teenager full of dreams. Two years later, with the assistance of his father Giovanni, he planted his first vines in McLaren Vale that now extends to 350 acres, laying the foundation of a winemaking dynasty that today is known as Serafino Wines and overseen by his daughter, Maria. From the beginning, Steve and his father worked from dawn to dusk seven days a week to produce wines of such outstanding quality that it wasnt long before the accolades began to flow.
