Aromas of tart cherry and pink grapefruit carry through to the palate, prefacing a delicate, light bodied wine with satin texture. Zesty acidity builds along the palate to define a tight lined shape and a vibrant, lingering finish.
Our Sangiovese is hand harvested on a cool morning, then transferred directly to the winery where the grapes are destemmed, crushed and pressed immediately off skins, to keep the colour to a minimum. The juice is cold settled for 48 hours then racked off solids. Cool fermented down to 14˚C for up to two weeks until it is completely dry. Once ferment is complete, the wine is stabilised and filtered before bottling.
Lopresti Lot 11 Vineyard - Flour Mill Road, Whites Valley, McLaren Vale.
Located in close proximity to the Gulf of St Vincent in the Whites Valley area of McLaren Vale between Willunga and Aldinga. The heavy clay here promotes strong growth in spring but dries out and cracks in summer, pulling back vine vigour as they approach veraison. The coastal location also allows sea breezes from the Gulf of St Vincent to mediate daytime heat during the critical ripening period.
