2019 Sangiovese

2019 Sangiovese

Our 2019 vintage Sangiovese has all the hallmarks of this variety.  This wine has inviting vanilla oak notes supported by subtle red fruit and hints of leather. A medium weight on the palate but full of flavour and texture with spicy notes of cherries and fine grained tannins on the finish.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
In so many ways, The Islander produces wines that are more European than Australian. Note the degree of savouriness in its wines & the use of fruit as a conduit for complexity & not necessarily an end in itself. Sangiovese is such a wine. Fragrant with black cherries, capers, anise, bitter chocolate. It runs smooth across the palate, supple oak playing its part & imparting sweet mocha. Cherry pip, chalky tanning still melding. Drink to 2030. Halliday Wine Companion Magazine Aug/Sept 2020
