A lifted nose with aromas of bramble, blackcurrant and aniseed.
The palate is rich and complex with red fruits, fresh herbs and earthy tones. The finish is long with characteristic savoury tannin. A typical rustic sangiovese to be enjoyed now or cellared for up to 10 years.
Sangiovese was pioneered in Australia by Coriole Vineyards with the first plantings in 1985. It provided a contrasting style to Shiraz, the great tradition of McLaren Vale. It has proven to be ideally suited to the warm maritime climate of the region.
