A reference point for Australian Sangiovese. Fully destemmed, this wine starts with a cold soak and is allowed to ferment naturally. Sees around 16 months in French oak prior to bottling.
“Grown on a close-planted vineyard at Heathcote. It’s well worth tracking this wine down.
Sangiovese of presence. It’s not particularly weighty but it makes itself known; the palate carries an air of authority. Coffeed oak, black cherries, herbs and spiced, and lots of tannin-strewn carry through the finish. Both leathery and refreshing at once. Persistence, real persistence. Modern and traditional at the same time. Really impressive. Price is excellent too.” 93 points, Campbell Mattinson, www.winefront.com.au
