The Alfredo Second Pass Shiraz Winemaking:
The Alfredo Second Pass Shiraz is made as a tribute to our founder, Alfredo Nugan. When a young Alfredo emigrated from Spain in 1940, he had a clear vision of his family’s new life in Australia. Today, his legacy sees the Nugan family established as one of Australia’s most successful agricultural enterprises. This limited release collection of premium wines are a tribute to his vision and the passion he instilled in us, his family, to pursue his ideals of outstanding quality and service.
We source the grapes for this Second Pass Shiraz from premium vineyards in the Riverina, in regional Australia. After fermentation, the winemaking team will softly bag press the juice. Once we complete this step, we will then place the wine onto racks onto pomace and yeast lees of our premium “Alfredo” Dry Grape Shiraz. The winemaking team, under the guidance of Daren Owers, will do this to add and increase the wines intensity. Thereafter, we will leave the wine maturate in French and American oak for 12 months. This is the final stage and will result in a wine of intensity and quality.
