The Hedonist McLaren Vale Sangiovese 2016

Sangiovese from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 02-Jul-2018
Dark, deep, ruby-red colour with suggestions of black hues at the heart, and lighter garnet tints on the edge. The nose is gently full and voluminous with softly-packed aromas of savoury dark-red berry fruit melded with notes of game, spices, dark and dried herbs and earthy detail. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegantly concentrated with fine and smoothly packed core of savoury red berry fruit entwined with earth and dark herbs, along with soft spices and nuances of game. The fruit possesses a soft richness and sweetness, and is balanced by light, supple, grainy tannin extraction with integrated acidity. This has linearilty, and the wine carries to a slender, dry, soft finish. This is a moderately sweet and rich Sangiovese with savoury dark-red berry fruit, earth and dark herb, game and spice notes on a supple-textured palate. 94% Sangiovese and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon from estate vines in the Willunga foothills, fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine spending 30 days on skins, 70% of the wine aged 12 months in seasoned French oak 300 L hogshead barrels. 17.5/20 Jul 2018 RRP $30.00
