** NEW RELEASE **
Our ‘Mother Block’ site at Chalmers Merbein Vineyard is at the heart of all that we do. As well as it being the location of our family home and business, this unique and diverse vineyard houses plantings of each variety that we’ve imported to Australia over the last 20 years. It is therefore, also the source block for supplying millions of vines planted across Australia through our vine nursery.
Mother Block Red Blend is a co-fermented blend pulling the best qualities from a mix of red Italian varieties, Sagrantino, Piedirosso, Negroamaro, Graciano, Teroldego, Nero d’Avola, Uva di Troia. The grapes are harvested and co-fermented with will yeast for approximately 20 days, then matured in stainless steel.
The aromatics combine red and purple fruits – pomegranate, plum, and cherry — with savoury qualities of licorice, oregano. Gulpable, food-friendly, and bright, the Mother Block Red Blend is a wine for every palate, dish, and occasion.
