Brokenwood Wines

2015 Sangiovese

2015 Sangiovese

Beechworth, VIC

Vibrant young colours and medium density. Very fragrant and appealing nose of red/maraschino cherry aromas. Background sweet oak although the wine was not in any new barrels. Bright savoury Sangiovese fruit on the palate with juicy acidity. Typical drying tannins and red spice/ginger notes. A great finish and immensely enjoyable.

Wine Profile
Vinification
Processing started with 3-4 day cold soaking and then a 4-5 day ferment with hand plunging. The oak regime with this wine matured in older French oak with 30% puncheons.
Winemaker Comments
Brokenwood winemakers and crew don’t need too much encouragement to taste a range of world wine styles and one of our favourite countries is Italy. Add to this a progression of young winemakers from Italy over the years espousing the qualities of Sangiovese and Nebbiolo; it is not surprising to see these varieties under the Brokenwood label. Beechworth is a very important region for us and the vineyard has bounced back from the frosts of late 2014. An excellent winter and spring leading up to a fine summer, some rain in mid-January but not enough to cause any concern.
Food Pairing
Pasta, of course or a good old classic BBQ.
Drink
Drinking well now but will improve with further bottle age.
