2021 Shay's Flat Fresca Sangiovese
Notes from Owen:
This is grown by Cory Hope on the Certified Organic Shays Flat Site in the Landsborough Valley Pyrenees. The 2021 season was plentiful, good sized crops across the board. The Sangiovese had a bigger crop than expected & slowed towards the end with its ripening, losing a bit of leaf. It seemed like it was close to being harvest & was picked as the vines were shutting down for the season. Fermented in stainless, pressed after 8 days to keep freshness, then barrelled down for 12 months in a variety of casks 225, 300, 500 & 600L. It was light and fresh with heaps of detail & great acid, it was very interesting to find the wine was 10% alc, it tastes like 12%. Hard to believe this wine is low in alcohol but tastes like its the right vibe.
