Our 2019 ‘Super Margs’ draws influence from the highly sought after and respected Super Tuscan wines of Italy, which are made from non-indigenous varieties. After patiently waiting vintage after vintage for Sangiovese fruit, and having finally come into some this vintage, we decided to make a diversion from the regionally popular Cabernet Merlot blend and instead create a French Italian influenced, modern style wine – Sangiovese Cabernet.
The ripe fruit of the Cabernet Sauvignon provides richness and flavour, while the Sangiovese provides youthfulness, aromatics and overall acid to the blend. This wine is a little heavier than a medium bodied wine and shows off some great fruit and well-integrated tannins.
he nose shows lifted aromas of blackcurrant and some dark chocolate.
The palate is rich and smoothly textured, yet displays youthfulness and vibrancy. The fruit forward Sangiovese combined with the smoother Cabernet, contributes classic layers of plums, and a touch of clove thanks to the French oak while maintaining spiciness from the Hungarian oak. This wine has a little more complexity mid-palate and a rich texture.
