Description

BACKGROUND
There is a little rascal hiding in all of us; a sometimes naughty side. A mischievous bon vivant who loves the good times and late wild nights. This character symbolizes the nature of this Italian grape variety. Delicate red fruit aromas on the nose with a crazy savoury structure on the palate. We planted this intriguing variety at our estate in McLaren Vale and Mundulla in 2010.

WINEMAKING
We used traditional winemaking, focused on just capturing these interesting varietal characters. Aggressive tannins slowly softened with time in older 300 litres oak barrels. Further maturation will help the structure integrate and the flavours evolve.

THE WINE
Bright, dense and deep crimson in colour. Dark morello cherries with herbaceous hints of rosemary on the nose. Full-bodied and robust with well-integrated tannins balanced by mid-palate supple fruit characters and acidity. A savoury wine with a smooth yet spicy finish. Cellar for 2 to 4 years.

SERVING SUGGESTION
Assertive, full-flavoured dishes like: venison, spaghetti puttanesca, lentil soup, and roast duck with green peppercorn sauce.

*VEGAN FRIENDLY*
