These Clare Valley Sangiovese grapes comes from a block at the back of Sevenhill that borders my Grandfather’s farm. On high ridge the rows run North South at an elevation of 470m and the vines are 27 years old.
From the 2019 Vintage, we picked our Clare Valley Sangiovese early to produce the Darting Hare Sangiovese so we could keep it in a light and bright style with lovely red cherry, strawberry coming through in the fruit. Aged in 20% new French oak for 12 months to allow more body and structure to develop.
