Bendigo makes a very special style of Shiraz that's unique to the region's distinctive terroir and clime. Grapes are harvested off vines planted to heavy clay soils littered by pieces of limestone. The vines are hedge trellised, exposing grapes to the sun as they achieve maximum ripeness. All vines are irrigated from the nearby Loddon River with ground level mini sprays, cropping has been reduced to three tonne per acre, resulting in a better quality wine. Fruit is vinified at 18C to 22C in open fermenters while being treated to a course of pumpovers and plunging. Components are pressed at dryness and treated to malolactic before ageing in a combination of new and prior use American oak hogsheads for up to a year.
A deep, vivid, violet red colour. Berry, blackcurrant and liquorice characters on the bouquet. The palate is full and rich with spice, berry and black pepper flavours. Memsie is well balanced, with a persistent finish complimented by fine tannins. Ready for immediate enjoyment, the ideal match to pasta, barbeques and grills or game.
