2016 Eperosa Meld MGS

Barossa Valley, SA

Eperosa's only wine bottled in 2016 and a beauty at that. Classic old vine, deep Barossa flavour but very approachable. Terrific value.



About The Wine

Brett Grocke moved to a new shed to make his wines in 2016.

What he hadn't planned on was that the wild yeasts he had relied on for almost a decade to ferment his wines wouldn't come with him. 

What resulted was plenty of stuck ferments and a lot of wine was lost. Lessons learnt the hard way. 

What we have here is a 'Meld' of the best finished wines from the vintage. Old vine Mataro, Grenache and Shiraz at a steal.

Gary Walsh awarded it 94 points and it's a lovely warming red wine to drink.

About Eperosa

Eperosa is Brett Grocke's heart and soul.

As a fifth generation born and raised Barossa viticulturalist/winemaker, Eperosa is the vessel through which he tells the story of the patches of the Barossa which he has cared for his whole life.

These wines are honest, robust and made with minimal intervention. A true representation of the modern Barossa with old vines and a rich family heritage as the backdrop.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Deep, rolling wine, packed with bitter chocolate and dried herb, thick with tannin and flavour, a lavender perfume in its midst, spice too, and an almost ashen (but good) finish. Acidity sits comfortably within the wine. It’s very purple. Very adult. And very good. I’m thinking this would be magic with a cassoulet, or perhaps a sausage sandwich. I’d drink it young, though it may well age well." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

No Fining. No Filtration

 The Meld is the only wine we bottled from the 2016 vintage. The 2016 vintage was the first in our new Krondorf winery where we had fermentation issues with our wild yeast ferments. What we have bottled is the very best of the successfully fermented parcels to give you a beautiful wine that is exceptional value. With a year of bottle age the Meld has settled into a lovely drinking window with lively red-blue fruits, cola, chocolate and spice. The mid palate is velvety and plush with succulent fruits that meld through to a long soft tannin finish . A perfect 'go to' wine now but it will continue to age gracefully over the next 10 years.
