REGION   Clare Valley, South Australia

FRUIT   100% Sangiovese 

ALCOHOL   15%  

CLOSURE   Screwcap  



WINEMAKING  2015 Clare vintage was described by some as text book for growing conditions.  A short ripening period with early harvest across the region, which imparted good natural acidity and bright fruit flavours for great balance.  Strong winter rains prepared the vines for a hot summer and rain a month before harvest.   In Clare, Sangiovese is less than 1% of the regions red grape yield so is very specialised and ultra premium in this cool climate region.  Extremely delicate and fine, the wine was aged in seasoned French oak barrels for a little over two years, with minimal intervention, and gently fined before bottling.  

COLOUR  Deep cardinal red.

NOSE  Bright currants with a hint of toasted oak.

PALATE  Structure and savouriness set apart this elegant wine   with Morello  cherry and hints of plum. Balanced by   chocolate, fine acid and silky tannin.   Layered dark  fruits with a stylish earthiness, this is a   serious Sangiovese.  Cellar to 2026

FOOD PAIRING  This Italian-originating variety craves Italian and full   flavoured game meats, tomato ragu, veal scaloppine   and cheeses.
