Margan 2021 Breaking Ground Barbera
Grown on young vines from the 1998 established Ceres Hill vineyard. Comprised of the earlier picks from the vineyard with the inclusion of whole bunch clusters which acts to bind and soften the naturally high acidity. Indigenous ferment, and pressed off after partial ferment, the wine was matured in a combination of stainless steel and older French oak.
Breaking Ground is the initiative of 2nd generation winemaker Ollie Margan The fruit for this range is sourced from distinctive parcels within the 100-hectare Margan vineyards. The resultant wines are reflective of Ollie’s time spent at home on the family farm, but also experience gained from working in other regions such as Central Otago, Bordeaux and the Adelaide Hills.
