Jeremy Oliver – The Australian Wine Annual 2015

Rating 91
Intense and vibrant red with carmine hue.

Very good intensity, quite varietal to start with, moving towards cabernet profile. Fruit (cassis, morello cherry), roasted and smoky odours are complementing the first nose. Attack is soft and is followed by fine tannins, tight and melting. The aromatic profile is showing some fresh fruit (wild strawberry), followed by a creamy acidity, supported by a medium structure, but intense and vibrant.

The 2010 vintage was a great vintage for the sangiovese, with lots of fruit and great balance. The cabernet is providing the structure to help this wine gain more weight.

Match with small game or guinea fowl.
