Product Description

 

Andrew and Nicki McPherson establised a small vineyard in country Australia in 1968. With their family’s help they built one of Australia’s leading wineries and are widely recognised as  pioneers of the Australian Wine Industry.  Today, McPherson Wines are being enjoyed in twenty six countries  across the globe and are one of Australia’s largest family owned wineries.  The wines are celebrated for their  beautifully crafted, fruit driven, Australian style.     

Lucie Inara Mourad was born in June 2010 on her family’s farm in the Australian countryside.  The granddaughter of Andrew McPherson, Lucie (known as Lulu) represents the promise of the new generation, the excitement of the burgeoning family and the strength of the family history that she inherits.

JO’S WINEMAKING / VITICULTURE
Fruit for the Rose was harvested from our vineyards during March 2015.  The juice was run off the skins early, in order to extract only the perfect amount of colour and then inoculated and fermented cool.  This allowed the retention of the summer berry characters, as well as retaining colour and intensity.  Post fermentation the wine was fined, cold stabilised and filtered, ready for bottling.  The entire process from juice to bottle was less than 6 weeks, keeping the wine fresh and vivacious.  

JO’S HARVEST NOTES
As a Winemaker, the challenges that each harvest brings never cease to amaze me.  Just when you think you have an understanding of what’s going on, another season hits bringing with it yet another challenge and a completely new scenario.  In 2015 we had little rain and warm tempratures, leading to fast ripening, early in the season.  Once temperatures cooled, things slowed down and we saw an increase in flavours and quality.  

JO’S WINE DESCRIPTION
Lucie’s Promise is a fresh and lively wine, with a lovely perfumed nose of raspberries and strawberries.  The palate displays great fruit intensity with underlying hints of mint, reminding us of Lucie’s family garden in the Spring. 

JO’S FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS
With excellent length of flavour, not only is the Rose fun and easy to drink, it also compliments a vast array of dishes.  Try it with spicy Thai noodles, as an aperitif with antipasto, or simply serve very cold on a hot summer’s afternoon.
