Overview

Sangiovese is the quintessential Italian red grape variety. The variety reveals a distinctive and unique personality that exudes inherent savouriness and rustic earthiness. The Sangiovese grapes are sourced from our Kangarilla Vineyard, which is located in the foothills of the Mt Lofty Ranges on the eastern border of McLaren Vale.

This meso-climate is ideal for encouraging Sangiovese to reveal all of its varietal charm.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

An intense and complex aroma with great depth of character.

Palate

Bursting with red and dark fruits, the wine is fine and complex with a long, juicy palate. There is excellent persistence on the polished finish.

Food Matching

The higher natural acidity and firm tannin of Sangiovese allows it to pair well with many Mediterranean style food choices, particularly tomato based dishes.
