2016 Save Our Souls Sangiovese

Yarra Valley, VIC

Top value Sangiovese. Drinkability and varietal character at a bargain price!



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.


Critic Reviews

DDS review

Little dried meat, dried flowers some blue fruit, cherry chocolate and spice. Bright and luscious, fine sandy tannins set to a smashable style. Plenty of spice, yum, I’d buy this. Rustic but perky and a tonne of personality. Cool. Super cool. And super food friendly. - Different Drop Wine Team
