- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
Sam Vinciullo is taking the natural wine movement into fine wine territory with his small, eponymous Margaret River label. Tiny batches of pristine organic fruit made with almost obsessive attention to detail. No adjustments of any kind. No oak. No added sulphur. Sam is the real deal.
The 2016 Red is a blend of 2/3 Merlot and 1/3 Cabernet Sauvignon grown on the Si Vintners’ vineyard in Margaret River. The structure, opulence and intensity of this wine is entirely derived from fruit quality and savvy winemaking - no oak lending tannin, no added acid bringing balance.
It’s a remarkable result. This is an impeccably balanced and smooth version of this famous varietal coupling.
What It Tastes Like
You are sucked immediately into deep diving pools of black plums, blackcurrants, herbs, bay leaves, licorice and fresh mint. It feels elemental. Pure. Vigorous. The tannins fall as perfectly laid pavers on a path, steadfastly laying the groundwork for the fruit to do its thing. Excellent wine. Fundamentally beautiful to drink. Exceptional work here from Sam.
Grown organically on the Si Vintners vineyard, Margaret River.
No filtration, no added sulphites, no additions, no oak.
Bottle Size: 750ml
