Description

The Italian variety, Sangiovese continues to gain popularity in Australia and with its roots happy to be in Clare Valley soils, this unoaked ‘easy-going’ wine style fits in to our repertoire perfectly, delivering vibrant flavours that create great conversation and satisfy many palates. The wine is light in style, packed with juicy raspberry and strawberry fruit flavours, refreshing natural acidity and soft silky tannins.

Winemaking Notes

Twenty five year old Sangiovese vines provide the fruit for this wine, which was fermented for a week on skins with seeds removed from the tank at the beginning of ferment. The must was gently pressed with all pressings removed from the blend. The result is an elegant, fresh wine with soft and ‘round’ natural tannins and enhanced fruit characters. It is a wine best enjoyed anytime up to five years of age and will complement many cuisines.

Growing Conditions

The 2021 growing season was nothing shy of ideal. Good winter rains led to a relatively dry spring, followed by summer conditions that were the coolest on record since 2002. October to February were statistically cooler than the long-term average. The impact of these conditions is evident in the quality of fruit and resultant wines. Flavour, sugar and acid balance in all varieties is as good as we have seen.

Food Pairing

This Sangiovese can be enjoyed on its own or paired with a broad range of cuisine, including, pasta, pizza and Mediterranean inspired salads. We recommend chilling slightly in the warmer months.
