Main & Cherry 2017 Sangiovese
Gateway Vineyard, McLaren Vale
Vines planted 2005
Altitude 100 metres
Clones – MAT7 on own roots
Grown in McLaren Vale on a sunny north-facing slope that is high in limestone deposits. Whole berries were retained after destemming the bunches (no crushing took place), before a cool, open top fermentation. Fermented slowly for 12 days on skins and then basket pressed to seasoned French Hogsheads for 10 months of maturation. Bottled without any fining agents.
A fresh, lush style with layers of juicy raspberry, Morello cherry and earthiness. The berry flavours are framed by a lovely savoury tannin structure, beautifully balanced acidity and a silky finish.
2015 Sangiovese - 94 points James Halliday
"Light but clear colour; fragrantly intense on both the bouquet and palate with pure red and morello cherry fruit typical of the variety, and a carpet of fine tannins. One is only left to conjecture what was the character of each of the components, for the blend has an air of logic and inevitability about it.."
