Excellent growing conditions in 2022 led to healthy vines and good yields. A cooler summer allowed for development of a medium bodied style with spice and elegance in our red wines.
Mike gets to embrace his heritage by making one of Italy’s most celebrated grape varieties. Sangiovese was one of Australia’s original alternative varieties with plantings dating back to 1970’s.
Vibrant and plush red cherry and strawberry characters fill the palate. The earthy and fine tannin structure leaves a smooth, delectable finish. Couple this with a bright line of acidity and you’ve got a fantastic wine made for food.
The fine tannin structure and natural acidity gives the wine the potential to age for 5-10 years. However, after one sip we believe this wine will last a max of three months in your wine collection.
The racy acidity of Sangiovese goes particularly well with tomato-based Italian dishes, but the savoury notes and silky tannins pair well with roasted, grilled and barbecued meats. Overall, sangiovese is an ideal match to a whole range of cuisines.
