Travis Tausend’s vines grow at the very Southern tip of the Adelaide Hills in a small community called Hope Forest. The original carers and traditional owners of this land are the Perimangk people. The soils here are varied but the vines put their roots into mostly clay, sand and ironstone based soils. The vineyard is planted on several slopes but mostly make use of a North-East aspect with exception to the merlot which faces the North-West.
Being in a raised valley that is cooled by two winds, the hot days experienced by the regions surrounding are mitigated by the Southern ocean wind and the gulf breeze, making the micro climate one of the coolest in the Adelaide Hills. Because of this beautiful flow of air, there are pockets of noble rot in the vineyard that Travis uses to add another layer to his riesling and sauvignon blanc.
Travis Tausend wines contain no added sulphites at any stage.
An aged Riesling with some noble rot (botrytis), giving it a rich, complex and honeyed character with forest floor notes. Picked with 15% botrytis and direct pressed. The wine was racked between tanks prior to spontaneous fermentation. This is quite a complex style as fas as Adelaide Hills Riesling goes, the way Travis likes to work on his Rieslings.
