Country of Origin: Australia
Type: Red wine
Grape variety: Sangiovese, Cabernet
One of the best value wines we've ever tried, and a perfect way to explore a supertuscan blend with clear Sangiovese front palate, Cabernet back palate, which blends seamlessly as it goes down. You'll have no trouble sampling this one over and over again.
We blend the best local Sangiovese (70%) with pristine parcels of premium Cabernet (30%) to weave the vibrant Cabernet notes of cassis and blackcurrant through the savoury undertones of the Sangiovese. Medium bodied red with a brick tinge at the rim, this wine displays aromas of red fruits with slight savoury and herbal notes. There is lovely soft, ripe fruit with good, almost tart, acidity in a balanced and dry finish. This is a very food-friendly wine and very versatile. It matched perfectly to popular Mediterranean cuisine and makes a perfect partner to dishes featuring tomato. The wine is released with current drinking in mind but will benefit from a year or two in the cellar.
