James Halliday – A medium, bright cherry red. Dark cherries, bramble and some floral notes are all present in this well put-together Aussie sangiovese. Just enough depth on the palate before finishing with grippy but balanced tannins and bright acidity. Drink now and over the next two to three years. - Philip Rich
About This Wine
This Sangiovese has a lovely combination of soft, spiced red fruits & plums on the nose with dark chocolate and very subtle orange. A classic sangiovese with a savoury profile - making it very easy to drink. Perfect for Saturday night dinner parties, as the food pairings are endless!
The Heathcote wine region in central Victoria is well known for its excellent red wines, most notably Shiraz. Heathcote reds are defined by their inky depth of colour, and deep, dark complex fruit flavours. This is combined with well balanced tannins and acid that help to give the wines great cellaring potential.
All this is made possible by the terroir. The Heathcote region sits at between 160m and 380m elevation with a temperate climate of even rainfall. The soils are rich in calcium red soils made up of “greenstone”. These soils are prized for their water retention capabilities allowing them to drain freely but still hold enough water throughout the growing season. The grapes that result are small and concentred which in turn make rich concentrated wines.
