Mercer 2021 Preservative Free Rouge
Preservative free. A blend of Shiraz and Montepulciano. Made by Australia’s leading preservative free winemaker, this young red blend marries Shiraz from Hilltops and Montepulciano from Central Ranges in NSW.
A refreshing Nouveau style, with pure red fruits and soft tannin, makes for a mouthful of fruit – showcasing balanced flavours of raspberries, blackberries and plums. Picked at optimal ripeness and left to soak on skins three days prior to fermentation. Each variety was vinified independently and blended after short maturation in older French oak puncheons. No sulphur was used while making this contemporary red blend, perfect for the Australian climate. Mercer makes sustainable wines rediscovering variety and place.
