Sangiovese (91%), Canaiolo Nero (3%), Mammolo (2%), Colorino (2%) Malvasia Nera (2%) CANBERRA DISTRICT


A cool, wet spring and warm but temperate conditions through to harvest ensured full ripening and very good accumulation of flavour and tannin.


A number of clones of Sangiovese as well as small quantities of the traditional Tuscan blending varieties Canaiolo Nero, Mammolo, Colorino and Malvasia Nera are grown on a range of vineyards across both granite and shaley soil near Murrumbateman.


The grapes were hand-harvested at around  13 Baumé.   Fermentation with natural yeast took place in open fermenters which were worked by hand to extract flavour and tannin.  Parcels went through a natural malolactic fermentation and ageing in a mix of new (10%) and seasoned Allier and Tronçais oak.  Blending and bottling took place in March 2018.


Spiced redcurrant, mulberry and tobacco yield to a rich palate  framed by cherries, hints of tar and firm savoury tannins.
