Magpie Estate 'SF2'

Mourvedre Grenache, 2016

Australia Red

Barossa Valley 75cl

Partial whole bunch- about 30%, wild yeast fermentation. Fermented in tank and then in old oak. Bottled unfiltered no additions whatsoever. It's an experimental wine, a natural minimal intervention wine. c65% Mourvedre, 35% Grenache. Lovely deep, bright colour leads to a really perfumed nose. Bright with red and black berry and cherry fruit, spice, white pepper, a touch of clove.
Similar on the palate, quite weighty with rich fruit, crunchy and bright, a touch of damson along with black raspberry and cherry, lots of spice and soft tannins. It's a big juicy mouthful, unadulterated and fresh. Drink young.
