Tasting Notes
"A modern Chianti from a warm site. Close your eyes and you could believe that here, except the hint of eucalypt gives the game away. Otherwise an appealing medium bodied red with lots of forest berry fruit, drying tannins and a savoury style. 17/20 90/100. Would I buy it? A glass or two." Andrew Graham, Oz Wine Review
Awards
Gold medal at the Rutherglen Wine Show and Silver at the Australian Alternative Variety Show
Vineyard Notes
The fruit is grown in our original Sangiovese vineyard that is now 16 years old and has begun to mature and produce sensational fruit. The fruit was hand-picked in two separate passes through the vineyard to ensure that the berries were harvested at optimal ripeness.
Winemaker Notes
This a handcrafted wine that was was fermented in open vats with daily hand plunging. It spent 21 days on skins to maximize the complexity in the finished wine and develop the fine tannins that this variety is known for. After a further 12 months in seasoned French barriques the Sangiovese was bottled without fining.
Food Pairing Notes
Wild boar rag├╣ with fresh pasta
