MAIN & CHERRY 2017 SANGIOVESE
Gateway Vineyard, McLaren Vale
Vines planted 2005
Altitude 100 metres
Clones – MAT7 on own roots
Grown in McLaren Vale on a sunny north-facing slope that is high in limestone deposits. Whole berries were retained after de-stemming the bunches (no crushing took place), before a cool, open top fermentation. Fermented slowly for 12 days on skins and then basket pressed to seasoned French Hogsheads for 10 months of maturation. Bottled without any fining agents.
A fresh, lush style with layers of juicy raspberry, Morello cherry and earthiness. The berry flavours are framed by a lovely savoury tannin structure, beautifully balanced acidity and a silky finish.
