About The Wine
Crunchy, pure-hearted Sangiovese from an organic Clare Valley vineyard.
Tangy red fruits are on display, cherry and cranberries mostly, with a lifted herbal, peppery feel. Tannins are soft and approachable - this a beautifully drinkable expression of Sangiovese.p>Nielluccio is the name for Sangiovese used in Corsica. Or it might be a slightly different regional clone, opinion is heated on this matter.
The Koerner brothers, Damon and Jono, are on a mission to bring the classic wine styles of the Clare Valley into the modern day.
They play with a mix of 'classic' Clare Valley varieties such as Riesling, Cabernet and Malbec and a suite of alternate varieties that show a different side of this iconic Australian wine region.
With fruit sourced from their own family vineyard and a move toward more contemporary winemaking, utilising terracotta and ceramic for fermenting and making as little additions as possible in the winery, it's easy to see why their star is on the rise.
As Mike Bennie recently wrote, "Some of the most interesting, delicious wines in Australia are emerging, and the reinvention and sexing up of Clare Valley is apparent."
