2020 Aglianico

Story

Sourced from a single vineyard in the Riverland Region, this fruit is hand picked and taken to the winery. 50% whole bunch during fermentation for 2 weeks, pressed and put to an older French oak barrel for 10 months. Transferred to bottle and left for 6 months prior to release on May the fourth. No fining, no filtration.

Very small batch. Only 288 bottles made.

$40

Tasting NOtes

I simply can’t stop tasting this wine. So much going on and so distinct in its un-distinct characters. Its smells like a fresh strawberry pie with a hint of cloves with a vase of violets on the side. Dark chocolate is rummaging around in there like my husband with his head in the fridge at night looking for a snack. Then the mouthfeel is huge with full dusty tannins and persistent red fruits coating all areas. A big wine that is very inviting.
