VINIFICATION:

Sangiovese is one of Australia’s new & exciting varieties, originally from Tuscany in Italy and is suited to Langhorne Creek’s temperate, Mediterranean climate. Our classical winemaking, which includes the use of French oak puncheons, ensures a wine of interest substance and style.

This vintage of Blackbilly Sangiovese has produced a fresh and fruity wine with a complex medium weight palate reminiscent of herb, red cherriesand bitter chocolate. The maturation in large oak for 8 months provides integration of tannin and fruit flavours without oakiness.
