2020 Lucy M vin rouge
The merlot is grown at the Magpie Springs farm in the Hope Valley. It has sand soil and is at the top of a hill near the ocean with strong ocean breezes sometimes. The vines are 25 years old and VSP trained and spur pruned.
The Syrah fruit comes from a farm on the hills in Mclaren Vale and is wild farmed’ is in shady spot with red clay soils. The pinot noir grown in the heart of the Picadilly valley at the deanery with red clay over sandstone and an eastern facing aspect at the bottom of a cold deep valley. 100% whole bunch carbonic fermented for 10 days. Then pressed to 500L barrels and aged and assembled at bottling.
Deep rich and rustic. It’s a vin de label, deep rustic tannin and a little dirty (the way you like it, that is if you like natural wine). Sit by the fire and watch the bottle disappear!
