New Vintages released

The three most important wines from the vineyard in terms of production are the Sauvignon, Rosé and Merlot Cabernet, which we normally release around April straight after bottling.

Each year though, we’ve seen the wines improve and develop by a huge amount in the first few months in bottle, so this year we thought we’d release the wines a little later.

And we think it’s been worth it. The Sauvignon is starting to show a mineral grassy fragrance and mouthwatering freshness, the rosé, pale and delicate and with refreshing hints of red fruit and the Merlot Cabernet, deep black and red fruit aromas but soft and vibrant on the palate.

All in all, a great trio from two difficult vintages which show Grand Mayne at its best.

All are available now.
