About The Wine
You might not expect it from one of the region's premier Pinot Noir producers, but William Downie believes that Sangiovese is the red variety that might be best suited to the Yarra Valley.
This fruit comes from the lower Yarra, where the temperature is a little warmer and better suited to fully ripening Sangiovese.
The fruit is concentrated by having 15% of the juice syphoned off for the Rosé during the winemaking process, leaving a robust, characterful yet brilliantly approachable style of table wine that is going to match a vast array of foods.
A very tasty wine, one of the friendlier Sangios you will have tried from Australia - but one that is also varietal and great value.
