'Five Hundred'. Named in reference to the magnificent five-hundred-metre-long rows from which this sangiovese is picked.

Tasting Note

Red fruits of cherry, tart plum and strawberry meet with savoury tones of dried oregano, roasted red capsicum, subtle green peppercorn and dry spices. Hints of charcuterie and savoury meats sit in the background while fine powdery tannins and succulent acidity envelope the palate from start to finish. 


Crushed and destemmed, fermented in two tonne open fermenters with twice daily pump overs. Temperatures were kept cool, between 20 and 24 degrees celsius to retain fruit vibrancy and ensure a soft tannin structure. After ferment the wine was pressed to tank, racked off gross lees and matured in 50% seasoned French and 50% seasoned American oak. Natural Malolactic fermentation was completed in barrel, following which the wine was racked, sulphured and returned to oak to complete its 20 months maturation. No finings and only light filtration were used prior to bottling.


Lopresti Lot 11 Vineyard - Flour Mill Road, Whites Valley, McLaren Vale. 

The fruit for this Sangiovese comes from a single five hundred metre long row from the Lopresti family vineyards. Located at the southern end of McLaren Vale between Sellicks Hill and Willunga on the foothills of the Mount Lofty Ranges. These vineyards are a mix between Ngaltinga & Christies Beach Formation with north-south orientation. The rich, heavy clay loam soils and warm summer days produce a more deeply coloured, full flavoured wine with soft, silky tannins.
