Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The warmer conditions during the 2014 vintage proved ideal for ripening the Sangiovese fruit and produced a wine with classic Sangiovese aromas of cherry, plums, and a touch of spice accompanied by gentle savoury notes. The palate is rich and fleshy with black and red fruits framed by characteristic Sangiovese tannins and gentle oak. The wine has great persistence and a remarkable balance between fruit, acid and tannin. This is a wine that demands to be served with a meal, it is a delicious wine to drink young but will reward patient cellaring for the next five years.

Vineyard Notes
Balgownie Estate has been growing Sangiovese in Bendigo since 1999. Sangiovese is a delicate grape variety that prefers temperate growing conditions, similar to those found in the Bendigo region. The variety requires careful attention in the vineyard in order to maximise its potential. The 2014 vintage provided ideal growing conditions for Sangiovese – a long warm growing season that avoided any extreme warm or low temperatures.
Winemaker Notes
After hand picking, the grapes were crushed and left to macerate on skins to extract flavour and fine tannins. The wine was fermented in open vats and hand plunged daily to develop the firm tannin structure that this varietal is renown. The wine was then completed by maturation in French oak barriques for 18 months - only older, well-seasoned barrels were used to preserve the varietal aromas in the final wine.
Food Pairing Notes
