  • VINIFICATION
    The fruit was machine harvested into 2.5t steel bins, transported directly to the winery for immediate processing. Crushed to static fermenters it was pumped over twice a day for approximately 20 minutes each time. During which time the temperature and acid levels were monitored constantly and adjusted when necessary, after completing fermentation the wine was pressed to tank using an air bag press. It was racked off gross lees directly to barrel to finish malolactic fermentation and mature in mainly older used barriques. The barrels were checked and topped each month.

  • MATURATION
    100% older oak.

  • APPEARANCE
    Bright cherry red.

  • aroma
    Sweet red cherries on the nose with hints of thyme, fennel and dried bay leaf.

  • PALATE
    Mouth-filling tannins with sweet red cherry flavours and a hint of spice on the finish.

  • FOOD MATCHING
    Chargrilled eye fillet.
Deliciously savoury, fruity and smoky, this is top shelf Australian Sangiovese. It's bone dry with intense floral aromas introducing a palate that's full of sweet cherries, pomegranate and bold, chewy tannins. It's a red wine made for food and would partner especially well with veal cutlets and garlic mash.
