"Light ruby in colour with a red rim. A savoury nose with a hint of cherry, leather, dusty oak, tomato chutney and spice. Mouthfllling palate with tingly acid and flavours of cherry and pepper, following through to a long fruity finish.. . " Australian & New Zealand Wine Industry Jourl (Australia), 29 Oct 08
". . .This is a medium-bodied wine of good quality; its easy to recommend. Indeed it is one of the better McLaren Vale sangioveses I have seen, and it should drink even better in a couple of years time. Drink: 2009-2012" www.winefront.com.au, Campbell Mattinson (Australia), July 08
"…this wine has a sour cherry flavour that warms your mouth as a reminder of how good the last sip was." Shop Till You Drop, Guy Valiant - Sommelier, Mille Vini (Australia), January 2009
Winery Tasting Notes
A young wine, bright red in colour, Sangiovese doesn’t have dense colour, purple tints.
The aromas are of red cherry, briar fruit and sweet oak in the background.
The palate is very full with red cherry flavours and vanillin oak in the background. Part of the feature of Sangiovese is the dry savoury tannin structure. While the Italian styles can be very firm, the Australian wines, due to our climate and ripeness, are dry but balanced.
