As we look towards our next vintage I am reminded of just how exceptional our past four vintages have been in McLaren Vale, a testament to a little bit of good luck, a good relationship with Mother Nature perhaps, and some outstanding work in the vineyards by our growers Don, Joe and Michael Lopresti. Our next release of Sagrantino comes from the standout 2013 vintage, where mild and dry conditions were followed by a nice dose of warmth mid-February delivering bright, fresh flavours and a long grippy palate. We only make a little over 100 x cases and the last vintage sold out fast!

Sagrantino is an Italian varietal indigenous to Umbria, in Central Italy. Renowned for its tannic qualities, of brooding red fruits with notes of plum and earth, it is now finding a home in the Vale. It loves food, and rich pork and wild boar sausages, or a simple antipasti plate. We release our Sagrantino with a little bit of age, to help soften the tannins. I love its rustic, earthy qualities, the violet aromas, and the spice.

So to celebrate this new release we offer you a great six pack deal on our Sagrantino 2013.
