Description

BACKGROUND
From our sister vineyard in the Limestone Coast wine region, comes our 2016 Dolcetto Lagrein. A blend of these two Italian varieties which were planted in the vineyard in 2008. Dolcetto brings a plush softness to the wine, while Lagrein adds structure with brightness of fruit.

WINEMAKING
2016 in Limestone Coast was a slightly earlier vintage than normal due to a moderately warm and dry growing season, however a cooler finish enabled grapes to finish ripening gently retaining great acidity and tannin structure.

THE WINE
Bright crimson hues around a rich red colour.
Vibrant, perfumed aromas of blueberries and violets with some exotic spices make this wine very mouth-watering.
Medium bodied and without oak, the fruit intensity carries this wine through to a long, lingering finish.
Dolcetto adds middle-palate richness while Lagrein contributes structure, tannin and spice to the harmonious blend.
Chocolatey softness will grow and reward 5 years of cellaring.

SERVING SUGGESTION
Try it with an antipasto plate to start the meal.
