About This Wine
Cherry, strawberry and perfumed musk, Chinese 5 spice and savoury herbs. A delicious combination of fruit and savoury characters. Dark cherry, fresh cut rhubarb, earthiness finish with delightfully soft tannins.
Winemaking: Harvested across 2 nights for two types of Sangiovese clones the grapes were kept seperate and fermented in 5t open top stainless steel fermenters. The grapes were cold soaked, hand plunged over 9 days and pressed into seasoned French. The wine remained in 500L barrels for 4 months then bottled with minimal SO2. This wine is meant to be enjoyed early and even from the fridge.
The Adelaide Hills is one of the largest geographical wine regions in Australia, and amongst the most diverse in terms of climate, soil and topography. Because of this, many different varietals are planted here with the most dominant being Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. It is generally thought of as a cooler region, especially when compared to neighbouring Barossa to the north and Mclaren vale and Langhorne Creek to the south.
NZ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has been popular in Australia for a while now, but Adelaide hills Sauvignon Blanc (the most planted grape in the region) could be considered the Aussie Savvy Blanc. From www.adelaidehillswine.com.au about their Sauvignon Blanc: “Wines that are textured, edgy, vibrant and dry with exceptional fruit definition, length and crispness that marry superbly with summer seafood.”
You can also find some cool climate shiraz from the Adelaide hills, defying the more common big bold style that is usually seen in Australian Shiraz.
