Lucy M. Vin Rosso 2021
Anton Von Klopper was instrumental amongst others in the area, in bringing Australian Natural Wine to the forefront globally, pushing the envelope stylistically as well as changing people's perceptions of good farming. There are no wines quite like Lucy M wines, we are very lucky to receive a small allocation this year.
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 it sees the ocean, the soils are heavy red clay.
100% whole bunch carbonic fermented for 5 days. Then pressed to a 2500L jarrah barrel and 500L old French oak barrels and aged and assembled at bottling. Late spring gives the warmth to the soft dark forest where the red currents, raspberries and mulberries stain our shirts with tart sweet fragment red juice, running from our mouths like a vampires first kiss.
