Blend            

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

Season       

Warm and dry conditions throughout ensured full ripening and very good accumulation of flavour and tannin.

Viticulture

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.

Winemaking

The grapes were hand-harvested at around 13 Baumé. Fermentation took place in open fermenters which were worked by hand to extract flavour and tannin. Parcels went through a malolactic fermentation and ageing in a mix of new (10%) and seasoned Allier and Tronçais oak. Blending and bottling took place in March 2019

Taste

Dark cherry, mulberry and tobacco yield to a rich palate framed by hints of tar and firm savoury tannins.
