Winemaker's Notes

Made from a blend of Shiraz, Malbec, and Cabernet Sauvignon grown at Water Wheel's Memsie vineyard on clay soil rich with limestones. The wine has a dark cherry colour and a powerful nose with spice and aniseed characters combining with plum and cloves. The palate is rich, complex and full. There are strong spicy clove flavours up front followed by plums and a Christmas pudding type flavour of concentrated fruits. It has great length and persistence with hints of vanillin oak on the finish. The 2002 Memsie is ready to drink now and will cellar for the short term. Try it with a wide variety of red meats and pasta.
