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 2020 Vintage, we picked our Clare Valley Sangiovese after a hot start the growing season was an excellent mild ripening period to produce a more complex Darting Hare Sangiovese showing classic Sangiovese characteristics of lovely red cherry, strawberry with savoury notes coming through in the fruit finish with a soft tannin. Aged in 20% new French oak for 12 months to allow more body and structure to develop.
