Summary: Tread Softly is a contemporary range of wines seeking to deliver delicious, freshly flavoured wines that are naturally medium weighted and moderate in alcohol. By using more sustainable vineyard management and wine-making techniques to ensure their production has had a minimal impact to the environment.
Vineyards: Sourced from established vineyards of the rich soils of the border of Victoria and South Australia. The vines are mostly dry-grown and utilise expert canopy management to help to control ripening and vigour.
Winemaking: Harvested in the cool of the morning to avoid the warmer temperatures of the day. The fruit is quickly delivered to the winery for destemming and crushing prior to a regular fermentation in stainless steel tank. A secondary tank ferment ensues to create and capture the CO2 and then a short period of storage before bottling for an early release.
Tasting Note: Fruit driven flavours are at the fore with fresh pear, apple and subtle citrus fruit with florals and brown spice in support. The wine has a fine, persistent bead and the freshness of acidity helps to drive a longer and satisfying finish.
Grape Variety: 100% Glera
Region: South Australia
Winemaker: Corey Ryan
Tread Softly is a range of moderate alcohol, modern wines that are lighter on the environment and on your palate.
Not only are the wines naturally lower in alcohol, the wines are also crafted with minimal impact to the environment through expert vineyard and water management. In addition, for every six bottles of Tread Softly sold, we will plant an Australian native tree in a regeneration program in the Yarra Yarra biodiversity corridor in WA. This is a powerful program seeking to give back to the environment that we can often too readily take away from.
