Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of Spicy black and red cherry compote. Cherries, raspberries and a dash of anise and cardamom combine on the palate. Fine chalky tannins complete this wine carrying an attractive hint of sweet earthiness.
Vineyard Notes
The 2016 Sangiovese is from our neighbour’s vineyard nestled in the foothills of McLaren Vale just off the Kangarilla Road. The vineyard is trellised to vertical shoot positioning (VSP) in order to create dappled light on the fruit and maximise airflow so critical for this variety in order to achieve an even ripening.
Production Notes
This wine was fermented using traditional plunging techniques in open fermenters followed by an extended maceration on skins. The wine was aged in a combination of French and American oak puncheons and hogsheads for 18 months.
