Rosé 2020

Estate Grown | Hand Picked | 92% Grenache | 8% Mourvédre

The estate grown Marananga Grenache was planted in 2015 and trained in the bush vine method, meaning no trellis.  The cuttings were taken from the old vine block at Moppa, an old unknown clone and known for its unusual small berries.  The Mourvedre is sourced from our dry grown single vineyard on Moppa Hill which is planted in ancient sandy soil over orange clay.

The handpicked bunches were 100% de-stemmed, cold soaked and then whole berry basket pressed with juice straight to vessel for fermentation.  Wild ferment kicked off before we added a yeast culture part way through ferment.  The juice was fermented with light lees and stirred daily, temperature kept moderate, between 12 & 18 degrees depending on the stage of ferment.  Ferment stopped before total sugar dry and thus keeping a touch of natural sugars and then ageing on light lees for an additional 36 days before being bottled. Vegan Friendly.

Wine is heat sensitive. During the warmer months we reserve the right to hold orders in instances of extreme heat, until there is a clear path of non-extreme temperatures between us and you. All orders are packed and stored safely in our cellar awaiting better conditions to send the wine when it can be more safely dispatched to you.

Alternatively, you may request immediate dispatch despite the heat (at your risk) by choosing ‘Yes’.
