Jack's Comments: Simply Outstanding value for money.
Winemaker's Comments: In 1833 John Catto left his native Scotland to seek his fortune in the new colony of Australia. He settled near what would become Bendigo, calling his new home Memsie after the village from where he had come, and planted a vineyard on clay soil rich with limestones. Memsie now produces delicious, round, full flavoured wines perfect for immediate consumption.

Soil is deep ripped before planting. Vines are hedged trellised, exposing the grapes to the sun to achieve maximum ripeness. Red wine grapes are planted on heavy clay soil with pieces of limestone present in the soil.

During fermentation the cap was plunged and pumped over three times daily. After pressing in a Membrane press and completion of Malolactic Fermentation, a percentage of the wine under went Micro Oxygenation with the balance of the wine spending time in American Oak Hogsheads. The wine is Earth filtered and then Sterile filtered to bottle.

Aged in 2&3 Year old American hogsheads for 6 - 9 months.

Winemakers Tasting Note

The 2012 Memsie Homestead Siraz is a vivid garnet red colour, with fresh and appealing berry characters apparent on the nose. The wine is forward and mouth filling, with sweet, rich, red berry flavours complimented by some spice, and balanced oak flavours. It also features some savoury flavours that compliment the lingering finish.

Blend: Shiraz 86%, Malbec 10%, Cabernet Sauvignon 4%.
Region: Bendigo, Victoria

Random Wine Review for Water Wheel Memsie Homestead Shiraz
Wine: Water Wheel Memsie
Reviewer: Jo Cross (Victoria)
Rating: 9/10
Review: I came across the 2005 Water Wheel Memsie Shiraz, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon quite by accident. It arrived in a mixed dozen a few weeks ago and, quite apart from regular platitudes such as it having a heady, sweet perfume, an earthy dark ruby colour and the detection of a hint of wood and spices, it was the 'wow' factor that knocked me out. When I took it with me to share with my sister when I visited last week, she said, "Have you discovered Memsie, too?" Armed with an other bottle, we both went for lunch at another sister's home and, just like me, she said, "Wow!" when she had her first taste. What sensational value and an absolute 'must have' for drinkers of red wine.
