Description

Colour: Garnet red

Aroma: Highly perfumed nose with florals, musk, spice, aniseed and sandalwood. Beguiling and alluring aromatics from an Italian variety famous for its aromatic expression.

Palate: Tight taut and chalky with great length of flavour. The red cranberry and cherry fruit are entwined with the unique tannin structure for which Sagrantino is renowned.

Wine: This is the 5th release of the Lou Miranda Estate Sagrantino from vines planted in our Estate vineyards in 2009. There are two clones planted in the same block MAT1 & MAT4. The 2016 vintage of the Sagrantino showcases the varieties natural perfume and exquisite tannins that form the foundation of the texture and mouthfeel for which this variety is known. The delicate balance with making Sagrantino is trying to tame and control the natural assertive and abundant tannin derived from the skins and seeds without masking or dulling the exuberance of the aromatics.

Food Pairing: Due to Sagrantino’s savoury mid weight drying tannins pair with food that has a sweet element. Yakatori chicken, basted grilled meats, crispy barbeque duck . Warning ONLY pair with well matured hard cheese. Soft cheese will react with the tannin in the wine and cause puckering.

Cellaring: We enjoy the bright primary aromatics and so suggest immediate consumption. However the tannin structure of the wine suggests indefinite cellaring
