Di Giorgio Wines is a small family owned & operated winery in the heart of Coonawarra. Their winery is the 2nd oldest in the region with vines planted as early as 1963 on prime, shallow Terra Rossa soil in their 13.5 hectare property. The Di Giorgio Family are 5th generation winemakers that trace their origins to the small town of Secinaro in Abbruzzo, Italy. In addition to producing premium wines from Coonawarra and Lucindale, Di Giorgio sources specific varietal fruit from different areas of the Limestone Coast where they believe the terroir is best suited to certain grape varieties. Dark garnet in color, this wine immediately displays an enhanced & complex nose of red & black fruits, bay leaf, cassis, & savory oak. On its medium to full-bodied palate, it is rich & ripe with mulberry, cedar, & white pepper flavor layers, a fine tannin base, & hints of crushed leaf further accented by a savory persistence.
Ripe blackcurrant and red fruit characters with distinctive mint and eucalyptus notes. Sweet, fruit flavors dominate the palate which finishes with toasty vanilla oak giving length and richness
