2021 Sangiovese

Regular price

Steve Crawford has held this Uraidla vineyard since 2017, and year after year has appreciated the elegant & cool climate expression of this grape it has provided.
A very much a beloved grape of the 22nd century, Sangiovese here is silken and multi-layered with tight tannin and spice. Steve has said it best, so why fix something that isn't broken? "A mild and dry ripening season lead to a long period of flavour and tannin development. Dark cherries, plums and raspberries on the nose, with background forest floor, gamey notes. Slightly lighter palate feel due to the cooler ripening season. Cherries, spiced plums, dried rose petals, balsamic strawberries and drying tannin with a nice easy out to fresh acid and slight tea and tobacco notes."
