Sagrantino is a highly tannic grape, and this one needs another 5 years at least. Dense purple in colour with a tawny note at the rim; spicy, blackberry, vanilla oak and bitter chocolate nose; full-bodied, dry, savoury-herbal black fruit flavours that finish on firm tannins.
Great complexity and elegance with beautiful aromas and flavours of cherry, raspberry, spice and a touch of leather, a lovely brightness, silky palate and a firm underlying structure, a refreshing minerality and a long finish. A great match with game and hard or semi-hard cheeses.
Light ruby. Lots of oak on the nose but with beautiful “yummy” red fruits and Thrills gum. Tight palate, fine tannins, nice fruity taste. Good balance and length.
Only 160 cases of this Cab Franc from the Vinemount Ridge appellation were made. It’s a killer wine and a brilliant example of where this varietal can go in a ripe vintage when grown and made with care. The nose shows wonderful raspberry-cherry fruit, tobacco, plums, blueberry pie, violets and integrated spice notes. It shows wonderful balance in the mouth, with the fruits well-integrated, fine tannins and an underhanded approach to the oak spices. Just a very fine, elegant Cab Franc that will absolutely wow you.
For the number lovers, this is a blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. For the wine lovers, this is a full-bodied red with a complex bouquet of sweet vanilla, cassis, violets, raspberry, cocoa and mint. Length is fabulous with tannic structure to ensure a decade of aging.
A fabulous wine with a nose of currants, black cherry, plums, leather, cinnamon and cigar leaf. It’s sleek and polished on the palate with lovely cassis, currants and plums, supple tannins and bright acidity. You can age this blend of Sangiovese, Cab Sauv and Merlot for a few years.
