Time – The lost element in today’s winemaking, can be so precious – yet it is free.
Springfield The Work of Time Bordeaux Blend 2010 Merlot and Petit Verdot. These vines were planted on carefully selected sites and took 9 years to reach a level of maturity which they felt comfortable to use for the maiden vintage (2001). The grapes were fermented whole with native yeasts (true to our ancient custom) and left for 5 weeks on their skins. A slow 2 years of barrel maturation followed and a further 4 years of bottle maturation. Finally, Springfield released this wine rich, classic and complex from age – of vines and wine. This long wait, justified only by their passion, does bear fruit. It’s called – “The Work of Time”.
