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!
