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.
Region: Central Victoria
Varietal: 100% Sangiovese
Best Consumed: 2020 - 2024
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
I have been making wine with McPherson Wines for 15 years now, and just when you think you have it sorted, bam another challenge comes your way. Vintage 2020 in itself was manageable and promising, yields were low therefore overall tonnages down. Given yields were low, quality is great - the intensity of both colour and flavour in the reds and whites is excellent - there will certainly be some cracking reds from 2020. We were almost through the harvest when the COVID restrictions hit - which provided another level of complexity. However it all worked out in the end, it usually does, and I hope that everyone enjoys our 2020 wines.
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.
