2020 Sangiovese

"This is, quite simply, a lovely savoury red wine, medium-bodied and extremely food friendly. It pairs not only with Italian-accented dishes but also with modern Australian cuisine. You won't find many better sub-$30 reds."
Winsor Dobbin

"Alluring aromas of earth and bracken with lighter red berries and a hint of licorice. The palate has such effortless, casual appeal. Silky-smooth with lingering, red-cherry flavors. Sangiovese done right. Drinkability meets value."

"A bright and fruit-forward example, this has great freshness and drinkability. Blackberry and black cherry fruits burst from the glass with a dusting of Italian herbs. Supple tannins on a mid-weight palate make it an approachable and more-ish style to enjoy young."

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The nose is bright and pronounced showing an alluring mix of red cherry and floral rose, along with sweet thyme flower lift. The palate is medium bodied with great depth of flavour showing more cherry, raspberry and mixed spice. Fine but firm tannin give the palate great persistence and drive.
Winemaker Notes
So well suited to the McLaren Vale region and over 40 years of experimenting with sites, clones and rootstocks has led to this sangiovese being an Australian benchmark. Harvested from our 12 blocks across our 4 McLaren Vale vineyards it is interesting to see the site and clonal variations. The blending is done in the vineyard to create the optimum expression of McLaren Vale sangiovese.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine would pair beautifully with a mixed mushroom risotto or for a late afternoon tipple, team with cured meats and pickled vegetables.
Other Notes
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 - and has proven to be ideally suited to the warm maritime climate of the region. The fruit is sourced from some of the oldest producing sangiovese vines in Australia.
