2018 Hand Crafted Lagrein 2018 - Limestone Coast / Adelaide Hills

2018 Lagrein

Limestone Coast / Adelaide Hills

Story: Lagrein is a relatively curious north east Italian grape variety well suited to Australian viticultural sites.

Vintage: The 2018 growing season started slowly, but warmer weather eventually helped to speed things up. Fruit set throughout the region was good and the low rainfall and warm weather from January to April resulted in great sugar development, while a cooler than average March offered ideal night temperatures for colour and flavour development.

Nose: The nose offers beautifully complex aromas of blackberries, plums and earth with a hint of spice.

Palate: The palate is rich and opulent with smooth flavours of plums and spice, complemented by a tight, lingering finish.

Pairing: Try with kangaroo fillet medallions served with a green olive, parsley and pine nut pesto.

Oak maturation: 21 months in seasoned French oak.

Cellaring: Drink now or to 2028
