Crunchy red currant and tart blood plum unfold to brambly blackberry flavours, turned earth and charcuterie, all framed by dusty, structural tannins. It is savoury and taut rather than plush and succulent. There’s tremendous depth of flavour in this fragrant, firmly structured medium to full bodied beauty, with the fine and persistent acidity highlighting its rustic and earthy charm

VINEYARD INFORMATION
Vineyard Notes
Located at the southern end of McLaren Vale, about 4km east of the coastal town of Port Willunga, the soil here is heavy grey loam mixed with black Biscay clay and sits above ancient Gnaltinga formation bedrock. Strong vine growth in spring is tempered by summers dry winds, developing pure, bright and savoury fruit flavours that are tempered by cooling afternoon sea breezes. VINE AGE: 10 years ELEVATION: 25m above sea level SOIL TYPE: Black Biscay Clay
WINEMAKING & TECH INFORMATION
Winemaker Notes
The Sagrantino is picked in the cool of the night and transported to the winery where it is destemmed and gently crushed to small (2 tonne) fermenters. Once fermentation begins, we pump the juice over daily for around 10 days until we are satisfied with the tannin profile. The wine is then transferred to older French oak barrels, previously used for our G.A.M. Shiraz, where it remains for 18 months. The wine is then racked from oak, and bottled without fining or filtration months before being blended. The final blend is clarified by racking only, and bottled without fining or filtration. HARVEST DATE: March 2018 MATURATION: 100% used French Oak. 10 months. ALCOHOL (Alc/Vol): 14.5% RS: 1.56 g/L pH: 3.38 TA: 6.84 g/L
