Story: Lagrein is a relatively curious north east Italian grape variety well suited to Australian viticultural sites.
Vintage: Spring and summer were cooler than normal with above average rainfall and the 2017 vintage happened much later than usual. The combination of those factors and dry weather for most of the harvest resulted in higher yields and excellent quality across regions.
Nose: The nose offers complex aromas of plums and blackberries with additional notes of earth, herbs and spices.
Palate: The palate is rich and silky with notes of plums and spice, followed by a tight, elegant and lingering finish.
Food Pairings: Try with kangaroo fillet medallions served with a green olive, parsley and pine nut pesto.
Cellaring: Drink now or to 2027
