Sangiovese (98%), Mammolo (2%)
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.
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.
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!
