Save Our Souls Sagrantino 2015
100% Sagrantino from Chalmers Vineyard in Merbein.
The fruit is transported overnight to Yarra Valley and destemmed into and open fermenter. No additions are made and the must is left to ferment naturally with only occasional punch downs. After fermentation and pressing the wine is filled to neutral oak for 6 months before a small addition of sulphur dioxide and bottling without fining or filtration.
This wine is fun…spicy nose of anise and dark berries.
The palate has dark plums and cherries with a juicy centre. A back palate of crushed cherries linger.
