Lauregan ‘Single Vineyard’ Central Hawke’s Bay Sangiovese 2013

Sangiovese from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 18-Mar-2015
Full, near impenetrable black-red colour with youthful purple hues. The nose is shy and restrained in fruit expression revealing black cherry and black berried fruits along with nuances of dark herbs and mineral elements, and subtle oak lift. The aromatics are intricate and harmoniously interwoven. Medium-bodied, ripe black cherry and berry fruits are entwined with dark herbs. The palate is tightly concentrated and underlined by fine, powdery tannins and refined acidity. The wine flows with silky finesse and plenty of acid vitality and tension, carrying through to an elegant, long and lingering finish with bitter cherry notes. This is a very tightly bound Sangiovese with restrained black cherry fruit, refined tannin structure and good acid vitality. Match with slow-cooked red meats and hard cheeses over the next 7-9+ years. Hand-picked fruit, fermented in small batches to 13.0% alc, the wine basket-pressed and aged 15 months in 1 y.o. oak. 70 cases made. 18.0/20 Mar 2015 RRP $TBA
