The 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  that produced  more depth and complexity in the fruit.   A rich combination of strawberry and cherry fruit notes with mid palate savouriness layered with toasty new oak  from aging in 80% new French oak for 18 months.
