Raboso is a native grape of the Veneto, whose presence is documented in the Piave from 600, although its cultivation in thenortheast of Italy dates back to before the advent of Rome. In an ancient ampelographic Bulletin of 1885 we read that the ambassadors of the Most Serene Republic of Venice – which concluded its history in 1797 – in honor of England’s most famous characters with a few bottles of Raboso.

In the vineyard of the interventions are performed to improve the production characteristics of the vines and the quality of the grapes, for example: you select the shoots in spring, leaving only those that are best placed on the plant and in summer you remove the leaves that cover the clusters to improve the accumulation of substances in the skins and colors late summer, in September, it reduces the number of clusters on the lil screws to improve the accumulation of sugars in the berries. Only when the grapes have reached a slight over-ripeness can be collected, which is done manually.

Artus is an artistic translation of our local Gin Gin clone into wine. It is a provocative, complex and textural wine exuding the seductive spirit of “old world” chardonnay. The vines have been managed to allow only dappled light into the fruiting zone. This promotes flavor development, low tannins and bright levels of natural acidity. The fruit is farmed in the cool southern end of Margaret River. The tiny 100g Gin Gin clusters are hand harvested at first light to preserve freshness of fruit.
Flavours of fresh nectarines and candied pecan nuts are supported by aromas of poached pears and marzipan.

Dolcetto wines are known for cherry and licorice with some prune flavours and a slight bitter finish reminiscent of almonds. While the name implies sweetness, the wines are normally dry. The dark purple skin of Dolcetto grapes have high amounts of anthocyanins, which require only a short maceration time with the grape skin to produce a dark coloured wine. The amount of skin to contact affects the resulting tannin levels in the wine, with most winemakers preferring to limit the maceration time to as short as possible.
