Ravensworth Estate Sangiovese 2019

A BENCHMARK SINGLE-VINEYARD SANGIOVESE FOR AUSTRALIA. THIS HAILS FROM RAVENSWORTH'S ESTATE BLOCK. HEFTY, SPICY AND IMPRESSIVE.   

"An amazing wine, showing vineyard maturity and restraint derived from two year elevage in our cool cellars

A new approach to production has seen this wine tucked away in 2000l foudre for 22 months. A timeless method for this variety that allows it to progress slowly without gathering layers of oak.

A spice laden wine, juniper and black tea, cherry, a quite tight palate that has layers on fine tannin and persistent acid. Quite reserved at this stage. Built to cellar for 10-15 years as an estimate. Italian food surprisingly seems to work, affettati, salume, pizza, hard cheese, had it with braised duck and hand -cut pasta with just a hint of orange zest, and that was terrific." - Ravensworth
