Andrew Peace was the first to produce a Sagrantino in
with the 2005 release. They now have the largest planting of this variety in Austraila and this wine is from the hot 2007 vintage. Australia
Massive full bodied with flavours of leather, boiled plums, blackberry jam, mixed jubes and spice running wild. This tastes more like your typical Australian wine from yesteryear as it comes off as a dry red rather than a Sagarntino. The tannins are light and resolved but do offer a nice chalkiness. While this wine did improve over the four days I tasted it, I think it is ready to go but I would put it with some large proteins to increase the chances of maximum enjoyment.
