Rosé 2021

Estate Grown | Hand Picked | 70% Grenache | 22% Mourvédre | 8% Shiraz

The estate grown Marananga Grenache was planted in 2015 and trained in the bush vine method, no trellis.  The cuttings were taken from the old vine block at Moppa, an old unknown clone and known for its unusual small berries.  Mourvedre sourced from a dry grown single vineyard on Moppa Hill and planted in ancient sandy soil over orange clay.  A small amount of Saignee Shiraz from the Carl Albert Moppa vineyard was added for a touch of complexity.

100% de-stemmed and then whole berry pressed juice to vessel for fermentation.  Wild ferment and added yeast culture part way through ferment.  Fermented with light lees, temperature kept moderate, between 12 & 18 degrees depending on stage of ferment.  Ferment stopped before total sugar dry and thus keeping a touch of natural sugars.

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’.
