Tasting Note

Winemaker Ben Glaetzer reckons the 2016 vintage might be the finest he has ever seen from Langhorne Creek. Perfect growing conditions led him to be able to experiment with a new wine and new wine-making techniques resulting in the Foreign Correspondent.

This fragrant, elegant red is made from two varietals from Northern Italy, Lagrein and Dolcetto, giving it notes of bitter cherry and Provencal herbs.  In the words of Ben, 'It is a serious red that doesn’t ask to be taken seriously'.

Winemaking

The Dolcetto and Lagrein were picked simultaneously on the 23rd of February. This is over a week before our standard Dolcetto picking date and two and half weeks before we picked our remaining Lagrein. The two were then co-fermented for 24 hours before being taken off skins for a remarkable lightness of colour and tannin. No oak was used for this wine which was left in stainless steel for six months before cold stabilization and bottling.

Food Recommendation

Foreign Correspondent is best enjoyed slightly chilled, either by itself or accompanied by any dish you would normally reserve for whites and roses. Charcuterie, seared tuna and hearty salads would all make fantastic pairings.
