Wine Note

Magpie Estate 'The Mixed Thing'

The latest and best incarnation of this wine.
A smorgasbord of varieties - these are picked together on a fruit day and vinified together. c25% Grenache, 13.5% Malbec, 13% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 12% Cinsault, 11.5% Riesling, 6.5% Carignan and 6.5% Mataro. About 30% were fermented as whole bunches, wild yeast ferment. We pressed off the skins early (less time on skins = less tannins) and the wine was aged in stainless steel. Bottled early to keep it's incredible juiciness to the fore!
Berry fruits on the nose, quite floral too. Juicy and bright, its absolutely at its best with a light chill. Fresh and pure and great on its own or with a variety of foods. Drink whilst youthful. Also worth noting that this wine is bottled with a low amount of sulphur.
