Rosé 2022

Estate Grown | Hand Picked | 83% Grenache | 17% Mourvèdre

The estate grown Marananga Grenache was planted in 2015 and trained in the bush vine method, no trellis.  The vine cuttings to plant the Grenache vineyard were taken from the old vine block at Moppa.  An old unknown clone and known for its unusual small berries.  The soil is red/brown earth with underlying calcareous red clay and built on blue shale rock layers. Mourvèdre is sourced from a hillside single vineyard on Moppa Hill and planted in ancient sandy soil over orange clay.

100% de-stemmed, 12 hour skin contact and then whole berry pressed juice to vessel for co-fermentation.  Wild ferment to start and added selected cultured yeast part way through ferment.  Fermented with light lees, temperature kept moderate, between 12 & 14 degrees over 30 days.  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’.
