Winery & Vintage Info

In 1833 John Catto left his native Scotland to seek his fortune in the new colony of Australia. He settled near what would become Bendigo, calling his new home Memsie after the village from where he had come, and planted a vineyard on clay soil rich with limestones.

Memsie now produces delicious, round, full flavoured wines perfect for immediate consumption. Named after the nearby historic Memsie Estate, established in 1839 on the banks of the Loddon River.

Soil is deep ripped before planting. Vines are hedged trellised, exposing the grapes to the sun to achieve maximum ripeness. Red wine grapes are planted on heavy clay soil with pieces of limestone present in the soil.

Water Wheel Memsie Shiraz 2020 vintage saw the cap plunged and pumped over three times daily during fermentation. After pressing in a Membrane press and completion of Malolactic Fermentation, a percentage of the wine under went Micro Oxygenation with the balance of the wine spending time in American Oak Hogsheads. The wine is Earth filtered and then Sterile filtered to bottle. Winery Notes
