LIGHT-BODIED, STRAWBERRY, POMEGRANATE CHERRY, ROSE, HERBAL, SPICE, EARTH, OAK
Light and fresh, with perfumed aromas and distinct herbaceous and spicy notes — this unique red from the esteemed Clare Valley appellation in Southern Australia is made from the Corsican varietal Sciaccarello (Shak-ar-ellom, or “Mammolo” as it is known in Tuscany), indicative of a wider trend in Aussie winemaking for the production of elegant, light-bodied reds using traditionally Mediterranean varietals (which have done well in the face of an increasingly warm climate). Aged in a Slovenian oak 2000L foudre for 6 mos & racked to steel for 3 mos. Unfined/unfiltered.
