Small Batch Wines | 2009 Sagrantino
Q Wine, March 2012
Oliver's Taranga Sangrantino 2009, McLaren Vale: A great way to finish off the night with this heavy weight. This wine is the first vintage of Sangrantino made by the winery and it is a mighty fine effort. Violets, black fruits with a tiny herby touch, charred oak and a bucket load of tannin. A big chunk of pork will match perfectly.

Deep dark maroon.
Lifted floral violet like notes, Christmas cake and earthy spice.
Quite a different palate structure to the varieties we are used to in Australia, this Sagrantino has beautiful floral tannins, loads of savoury fruit and a fresh acid line. Best enjoyed over a shared meal with friends.
