The Songlines Grenache
£12.50

The ancient peoples of Australia navigated the vast emptiness of the continent using mind maps; instructions remembered in song and passed down the generations. A kind of pre-GPS TomTom. This enticing wine celebrates this near-lost tradition and the Barossa’s well-trodden red earth in its deep, warbling fruit, a very song of the soil.


 

Description

Details

Magpie is a joint venture between noted Barossa winemaker Rolf Binder and Cambridge-based wine merchant Noel Young. Both Rolf and Noel have a passion for Rhone varietals and this comes through in their wines, which use fruit from 15 long-favoured sites in the premium northern Barossa, drawing on Rolf’s deep understanding of the area... Noel then sneaks out into the night in a rubber catsuit and steals all the best fruit from these growers! The labels celebrate a superstitious theme, saluting the magpie, and we count ourselves lucky to have them aboard.
