Tasting notes Aromas of plum, dark cherries and liquorice lead to an elegant, savoury palate with flavours of cherry and plum. Fine tannins and firm acidity carries the palate. Viticultural notes The fruit for our Wild Ferment Sangiovese Cabernet was grown in the Granite Belt.The Granite Belt is situated on the Great Dividing Range 850m above sea level and 95 km inland from the coast. The winters are cold and frosty and summers warm producing a continental climate. Most of the region’s rainfall comes in the growing season feeding the buds and shoots. The soil is largely composed of granite, somewhat on the acidic side and is very free draining. Winemaking notes We have chosen to treat these noble varieties very traditionally using only the indigenous yeast from the vineyards and surrounds to complete the fermentation. Barrel ageing has added to the structure and complexity of this beautiful wine.
