WINEMAKER: Sven Joschke
REGION: Langhorne Creek, SA
"24 year old Sangiovese vines from Langhorne Creek beared immaculate fruit that when into this Sangio. Unusually mild 2021 days, cool night breezes coming off Lake Alexandrina provided a consistent and slow ripening journey. Picked super early with fruit desteamed and whole berry wild fermented. Pressed off again “nice and early” to preserve freshness with fermenting juice sent to old French hog heads for barrel fermentation. Minimal sulphur added on bottling. Cherry, blueberry and spice on the nose with lovely texture and length. Beaujolais Nouveau style inspired with that classic rustic Italian edge and dusty tannins."
"Spending the last 15 years abroad and interstate, Sven decided to ditch his life as a Chartered Accountant and come back home to South Australia. Swapping the Casio and spreadsheets for his ultimate calling of wine (originally working under Peter Schell at Spinifex and Jason Schwarz Schwarz Wine Co, as well as some time in Jura), at least he can now claim market research when enjoying some plonk!"
