Region: Adelaide Hills Grapes: Sangiovese First Glance: Firm but Fine, Cherry, Alpine Herbs, Long Finish
The Wine: Gentle Folk love Sangiovese above all other grape varieties. It's just magic up in the hills - with puckering acidity, dusty tannins and flavour for days. It's Adelaide Hills for sure, but its a clear comparison to the old world. As good as a lunch wine gets we reckon, and who doesn't love wine at lunch!
100% destemmed open topped fermentation for three weeks before closing the tank and leaving on skins for an extra three weeks. Pressed to a combination of terracotta and foudre for 8 months.
