Harvest Date

March 2022

February and March were dotted with a couple of rain events, leaving certain varieties close to harvest susceptible to fruit breakdown. The timing of picking was critical to the overall wine quality.

Overall, the season was around 3 weeks later than usual, with the vintage starting on 23rd February with Alpine Valleys Pinot Grigio. The majority of the fruit was harvested in the second half of March and April, with the last fruit harvested on 27th April, again picking before the next rain event.

Quality is high in our white varieties, showing great flavour and plenty of natural acidity, ensuring good longevity in the bottle. The red varieties are reflective of the cooler season, showing more elegance of style, with some highlights across Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in particular.

Our viticultural efforts with our fortified varieties paid off, and despite such a challenging year in the vineyard, we have excellent quality in our Muscats, Topaque and port style wines, with our Portuguese varieties shining through with delicious flavours.

Our Prosecco grapes were machine harvested in the cool of the night, and were immediately crushed and pressed to retain the delicate fruit characters in the wine. Only the free run juice was used for this wine, which was cold settled and clarified prior to fermentation. Post settling, the juice was racked into a stainless steel tank where it was fermented at 12-14 ºC for approximately 10 days.

At the completion of primary fermentation, the wine was kept on its yeast lees in tank for 6 months maturation, with weekly agitation of the lees to build mouthfeel and texture. The wine was then cold stabilized, fined and clarified in preparation for its secondary ferment. The secondary ferment occurred in specialized pressure tanks, which ensures the wine holds the CO2 (the bubbles) created through fermentation. At the completion of secondary fermentation in tank, the wine was again filtered under pressure (to retain the gas) and final adjustments (sugar, acid and sulphur) were added to finish the wine prior to bottling.

Our 2022 Pfeiffer Prosecco is a refreshing wine, with lovely aromas of green apples and Beurre Bosc pears. The palate is vibrant and zesty, with a soft, delicate texture and a crisp, savoury finish.
