Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Medium density colour and quite bright, limpid as Sangiovese is certainly not known for intense colour. Lifted stewed cherry/sour cherry aromas that are very appealing as a food wine. Some oak on the palate but mainly bright savoury Sangiovese red fruit and juicy acid/tannin balance. Medium bodied and a spicy finish makes for a perfect summer wine.
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. An excellent 2013 vintage and then a mild winter and early 2013 spring had everyone looking forward to 2014. The frost event of October 18 was so widespread that vineyards from central Victoria right through to Cowra and Orange in the NSW Hilltops were affected. The Indigo Vineyard lost quite a lot of fruit and then to really test the vineyard crew, temperatures in late December hit 41C and 44C in mid-January. Some rain, nearly 50mm in late January did cool things down.
Food Pairing
Pasta, of course or a good old classic BBQ.
Drink
Drinking well now but will improve with further bottle age.
