Tasting Note

A vibrant bouquet dominated by primary aromas of cherry cola and satsuma plum. Subtle spice from seasoned oak rounds out the aromatic profile. Opulent flavours of cherry, strawberry and dried spice flood the palate. It is medium bodied with tart cranberry acidity and youthful tannins. Fresh, pretty and silky on the finish.

Vinification

Crushed and destemmed, fermented over 10 days in 2 tonne potter fermenters and larger vinomatics with twice daily pump overs carried out in both circumstances. Temperatures were kept cool, between 20 and 24˚C to retain fruit vibrancy and ensure a soft tannin structure. The ferment was pressed off at approximately 1 Baume to finish in stainless steel tank before being transferred to seasoned 100% French for 6 months. Malolactic fermentation was completed by indigenous strains following which the wine was racked, sulphured and returned to oak to complete its maturation. No finings and only light filtration were used prior to bottling.

Vineyard

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.
