Blend
Sangiovese (98%), Mammolo (2%)

Season
The 2018 growing season commenced with typical spring weather giving way to a warm and dry summer punctuated by quenching rain in February.  Dry conditions through to harvest yielded beautifully clean and juicy Sangiovese grapes.

Viticulture
Sangiovese is grown at Tumblong (Gundagai) (ironstone-rich red loam) and Murrumbateman (red loam over shale).  Mammolo, a lightly coloured, fragrant, musk-like grape accompanies Sangiovese in this wine.

Sangiovese and Mammolo grapes were hand-harvested in the cool of the morning.  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 dry, with moreish mid-palate texture and mouth-watering acidity.  Great for seasonal drinking with antipasti!
