Vino Rosso - Lucy Margaux
Lucy Margaux's Red Wine is a fresh and fruity wine obtained from a blend of Merlot, Sangiovese, Pinot Gris, Gamay. The vineyards are located in Adelaide Hills, a relatively cool wine region northeast of Adelaide, in southern Australia. The topography is very varied within the area and the good vineyards are spread over long distances. The Merlot grapes come from Magpie Springs in the Hope Valley planted in 1995 on sandy soils. The vineyard is located on the top of a ridge near the sea strongly influenced by the wind. Sangiovese comes from the vineyard located in the Picadilly valley, planted on red clay soils on sandstone in 1993. Gamay and Pinot gris come from the vineyards in Totness, which grow on soils composed of sand on slate. The grapes after the manaule harvest are naturally fermented with only indigenous yeasts in small wooden vats for 2 weeks. Aged in old 500-liter barrels. The Red Wine of Lucy Margaux is characterized by the aromas of small berries, its fresh acidity, the dense tannins and the good length. Only 1800 bottles produced.
We taste it at a temperature of 16/18 ° in tulip glasses. A wine to be drunk immediately but will express its best in a few years.
A wine for the whole meal, from an appetizer to a second course of meat, to try with a spaghetti with tomato sauce and pecorino.
Cellar: Lucy Margaux
Lucy Margaux is located in Basket Range, a small town in the Adelaide Hills in South Australia. Behind Lucy Margaux we find Anton Von Klopper, who is considered one of the leaders in the Australian natural wine movement. Of South African origin, 10 years behind in the catering field as chef and sommelier of the Ritz Carlton Group, he decides to change his life and lands in Australia. After graduating with top honors in enology at the University of Adelaide, he spent the next few years traveling around the world working in Germany, New Caledonia, Zeeland and at the Domaine Serene in Oregon. These experiences lead him to declare: "I had the opportunity to work with many winemakers who destroyed the preconceptions I had about winemaking. At Domaine Serena, I realized that all great wines express the place they come from, the terroir and the variety of grapes, and the rest is a rumbling.A good vigneron must have an intimate knowledge of every part of his vineyard, must have a direct relationship with the vines that offer you their fruits, and it would be a shame to manipulate them with chemicals. 2002, with his wife Sally and his daughter Lucy, buys 6 hectares of land and starts planting vines focusing on pinot noir, and since then Lucy Margaux has grown a lot, thanks also to the desire of Anton Von Klopper to experiment to create new, always emotional wines , unmissable and alive.
