Overview

Overview

The Winemaker's Selection was introduced to allow experimentation and special parcels of fruit to remain separate so that they can show their true colours.

This 100% Sangiovese wine was harvested from our estate vineyard at Saltram, near Angaston. The 2016 vintage brought out the best in this parcel of Sangiovese. On the vine the fruit tasted of fresh, dark cherries, complemented by powerful powdery tannins–characters which remained through to the finished wine. With the vineyard now eighteen years of age, it perfectly captures the potential of Sangiovese in this unique aspect and location.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

This Sangiovese has lifted aromatics of fresh dark cherries with dried herbal notes and nuances of mulberries and chinotto.

Flavours and Palate

The palate is tight and focussed with classic grainy mouth-watering tannins which dance along the palate providing a backbone for the dark cherry flavours.

Viticulture

Viticulture

The 2016/17 growing seasoned commenced with cooler than average conditions through spring into early summer, resulting in good set and flowering conditions. Regular rain events and cooler conditions throughout the growing season resulted in a later harvest. These ideal milder conditions saw the grape phenology mature in line with sugars levels, producing full flavoured wines which retained their natural acidity.
