2021 “Rouge Un”
This bouncy light red consists mostly of Syrah that was fermented on skins for about 4 days, with some free run Syrah and Chardonnay to assist the fermentation. The Syrah comes from a vineyard in the McLaren Vale and the Chardonnay is from Hahndorf. It is light, showing a gamey quality to it, bubbling with cherried fruit and pink pepper. Small batch wines from wine writer-come-winemaker, Rachel Signer. After falling in love with the Adelaide Hills and all its flowers and vines and characters, she pulled up stumps to make wines and a life with her partner Anton Von Klopper (Lucy Margaux).
