SOLD OUT - Water Wheel Memsie Shiraz 2016 vintage is now available here.
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.
During fermentation the cap was plunged and pumped over three times daily. 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
