Farm Hand One Of A Kind Sangiovese (6pk)
|Categories for this Product:||
Pack Size: 6 Bottle Pack
Winemaking: Sourced from low yielding organic Sangiovese vines in McLaren Vale. Picked then fermented in small open fermenters with some hand plunging to help extract subtle tannins. After fermentation, it was consigned to barrel for 6 months in 20% new French oak and the rest in older large format barrels. Quality fruit handled well like this will ensure comfortable cellaring for 5-10 years.
2019 Vintage: This was a challenging year and so very much makes you think of Australia. It was a warmer vintage with only sporadic rains in some parts causing the berries to ripen sooner than prior years. Through great vineyard, water and canopy management the resultant fruit is bright and flflavourful with a soft acidity. This is a vintage showing up front fruit flavours and perfect for drinking from the get-go.
Tasting Note: Dark purple in the glass.Hard to dispute the variety on the nose with trademark cherries leaping to the fore. There’s a little savoury note too with a leathery, herbal bay leaf character that’s really polished. On the palate there’s more of that cherry/berry intensity all carried along by chalky tannins and characterised by high acidity on the finish that is so typical of Sangiovese. Pair it with an Osso Bucco.
