A Red Moon occurs during a total lunar eclipse when the light filtering through the Earth's atmosphere dapples the moon in red light. A penumbral lunar eclipse occurred on the 11th of February 2017 during harvest. Fruit from the Mangan Vineyard was hand-harvested, fermented naturally and basket pressed to French oak.
57% malbec, 37% petit verdot, 6% merlot, hand-picked on 11 Feb '17, when a total eclipse occurred, turning the moon red. Wild-fermented, matured for 9 months in French oak (10% new).
"It's a delectably juicy red berry wine with minimal interference from tannins, but will be no pushover as it ages." — James Halliday Published 01 August 2019
