Sangiovese


TASTING NOTES
We've stepped up the production this year, not an easy thing to accomplish given the demand for the variety. There's six different vineyards from Hall, Murrumbateman, Hilltops and Gundagai contributing this year. A beautiful medium bodied wine that carries fragrant cherry and spice aromas with a fine textural palate. Our fourteenth vintage and just getting better and better with vine age and us getting the smarts. 

FOOD
Anything with tomatoes in it will work a treat. Sangiovese goes head to head with high acid food like battlebots. So pizza and pasta along with more complex braised veal and game dishes will defs go well with here.
