Region: Canberra District/Hilltops
First Glance: Fruit Driven, Textural, Juicy, Fresh
Sourced from 5 vineyards in the Canberra and Hilltops regions. Processed as whole berries, so no pumps used. Naturally fermented and left on skins for 3 weeks. Matured in small 5 year old French oak casks.
A beautiful medium bodied wine that carries fragrant dark cherry, floral and spice aromas with a fine textural palate. Our fifteenth vintage and just getting better and better with vine age and us getting the smarts.

"This represents the 20th vintage for Bryan Martin's sangiovese. I reckon he has the knack now. There’s a lovely fragrance and such delightful fruit in this, all red cherries and barberries with splashes of blood orange and amaro. Tannins are spot-on, all textural, shapely and mouthcoating, while the juicy acidity seals the deal."
