Blend Sangiovese (99%), Mammolo (1%)
Season The 2020/2021 growing season commenced with good spring rains, giving way to a temperate summer. Mild, cool conditions through to harvest yielded beautifully clean, vibrant, and juicy Sangiovese grapes.
Viticulture Sangiovese is grown at Tumblong (Gundagai) (ironstone-rich red loam) and Murrumbateman (granite & red loam over shale). Mammolo, a lightly coloured, fragrant, musk-like grape accompanies Sangiovese in this wine.
Winemaking Sangiovese and Mammolo grapes were hand-harvested in the cool of the morning in late February, and early April, respectively. The grapes were whole-bunch pressed, yielding just the barest pink colour in the juice. A moderately cool fermentation was undertaken before preparation for bottling.
Taste The wine is fresh on the nose with aromas of mandarin, cherry, rose-water and spice. The palate is crisp, with moreish mid-palate texture and mouth-watering acidity. Great for seasonal drinking with antipasti!
