WINEMAKER COMMENTS

We focused on retaining freshness and keeping the vibrancy the vineyard brings to the sangiovese, while respecting the need for a savoury, textural finish. Super pretty yet somewhat serious

Wine Details

Style fresh yet savoury and delicious
Aroma red cherries and subtle notes of orange rind
Palate lovely vibrant fruit to begin, complemented with a creamy savoury edge owing to time on lees. The tight, typical Sangiovese tannin profile adds a refreshing crispness to the finish which is balanced with a lovely savoury note.

Winemaking

Season we had a tricky lead into the 2022 season, with hail and rain scattered in and around the Adelaide Hills. Fortunately, our Sangiovese site is well drained on sloping ground allowing for good airflow. This is crucial given the thin skin and larger berries of this clone of Sangiovese. We picked just before rain was forecast on 19 April.
Winemaking open fermentation over 8 days, with very gentle cap management. Jules’s youngest son, Louis, did his fair share of the pump overs for this wine! Malolactic fermentation was carried out in a concrete ‘tulip’ and extended time on lees helped to build mid palate weight to balance the natural tannin and acid profile of sangiovese.
Maturation seasoned French oak puncheons (500L) and concrete ‘tulip’ (3100L)
