THe WINEMAKING

Our Sangiovese was picked on the 14th of April then cold soaked for three days. It spent 14 days on skins as we utilized gentle pump overs for extraction. After being settled in tank for 2 months it was racked and sent to barrel where it spent another 8 months. No refining but filtered and then put to bottle.

The Vineyard

The maritime influence at our Langhorne Creek vineyard that is created by the afternoon sea breezes allows fruit flavours to evolve without excessive sugar production. The limestone based soils create wines of power and elegance with great varietal character. This vineyard is ideal for precision control over water use on the vines and known to provide more structural wines.

This is a good drink, full stop. It's medium in body, dry through the finish and generally well balanced.

Taste profile

Primary flavors

Cherry

Fruit flavors in red wines typically fall into two different categories: red fruit and black fruit flavors. Cherry flavour falls into the red fruit categories but the cherry flavours span from red to black, and fresh to sweet. Confusing! Red Cherries can typically be found in young Grenache. Black Cherries are found in mature Pinot Noir.

Forest floor

Forest floor in wine is traditionally a tertiary aroma that comes from ageing a bottle in some red wines. It's associated with similar notes of mushroom and leather which can develop over time. You might also find a wine that is described as 'earthy' will have a smell of wet forest floor.

Bay Leaf

Bay leaf imparts a savory flavour - similarly to its effect on a traditional Spaghetti Bolognaise - the flavour of bay leaf in wine is herbaceous or reminiscent of green olive.

Secondary flavors

Earthy Notes

Earthiness is an umbrella term for aroma and flavour compounds suggestive of mushrooms, vegetation, wet leaves, graphite, tobacco plants, herbs, potting soil, root vegetables, and hay bales. Usually most commonly found in red wines and only sometimes in whites.

Blackberry

Blackberry is a primary fruit aroma found in red wine and often tastes earthy and rustic, sometimes with a sweet edge.
