Vinification details

Our base wine undergoes secondary fermentation in a pressurised tank, known as Charmat Method. It took approximately four weeks to complete fermentation and was bottled soon after to retain the fresh vibrant fruit you see in the Euphoria. The grapes were grown on the Gemtree vineyard in McLaren Vale.

Vintage conditions

This was a challenging year in many ways, with lower yields than previous vintages and thanks to the Marquis Watering Program™, Mollydooker achieved outstanding fruit quality with exceptional flavour concentrations across the entire range. McLaren Vale had dry weather conditions throughout spring/summer 19/20 and low rainfall. The Langhorne Creek vineyards (60km west of McLaren Vale) on the other hand encountered significant frost early in spring along with hot and windy weather during flowering, conditions which reduced overall yields for both regions. A favourable ripening period for harvest was the silver lining to low yields, resulting in high quality, full-bodied and vibrant wines that reflect the characteristics of the 2020 vintage.
