Sangiovese Shiraz 2017

Region: Central Victoria
Varietal: 80% Sangiovese, 20% Shiraz
Alcohol: 14%
Best Consumed: 2018 - 2022

This funky, carefree wine is crafted from grapes grown in our spectacularly beautiful vineyards in Central Victoria.  This is a medium bodied, rustic wine with flavours of ripe cherries and earthy herbaceous notes.

Viticulturist Notes

The wine was crafted from 80% Sangiovese grapes and 20% Shiraz grapes, sourced from our Goulburn Valley vineyards in Central Victoria.  The individual varieties were harvested separately over a three week period in March.  Picking and crushing was completed during the cool of night to maintain freshness.

Wine Harvest Notes

Vintage 2017 is best described as a waiting game.  The season was very long with fruit slow to ripen and although the urge just to pick it all was there, we had to bide our time until we had optimal flavours and ripeness.  We made it through our marathon 2017 vintage and are thrilled with the exceptional quality including a number of really extraordinary parcels.

Food Recommendations:

This wine works perfectly with rich roasted meat, cured sausages and a selection of hard cheese.  Can be served with a slight chill to allow the fruit and florals to shine.
