The wonderful Italian grape, Sangiovese, is one of the oldest known varieties in the world. Its beauty lies in its ability to produce wines that are highly concentrated in flavour yet have a lighter, more approachable structure than Cabernet or Shiraz.
The grapes used in our Sangiovese were grown on a southwest-facing slope in the Broke-Fordwich sub region of the Hunter Valley. The vineyard lies at the foot of the sandstone cliffs on free draining 'mountain wash' soil. An open canopy and an excellent aspect created perfect conditions for steady ripening and brilliant colour development.
2015 was a cooler year and this is reflected in both the weight and flavour of the 2015 Sangiovese. We love Sangiovese for its medium bodied structure and its underlying complexity. Capturing the sweet cherry flavours of this magnificent Italian variety, this wine is deceptively complex with a delicious savoury finish.
This Sangiovese is imbued with sweet cherry and leather tones and loaded with fabulous smoky chocolate and mushroom characters. The savoury tannins and complex fruit characters make this an ideal food wine.
