The classic firm nebbiolo tannins are here, and are superbly balanced by ripe red fruit. Violets and toast on the nose lead on to a soft, round palate of dried cherries with a smoky undercurrent, finishing on a savoury note.
Definitely a food wine -- match it with a wild mushroom risotto. Alc./Vol. 12.5%.

Sandhurst Ridge Wines
Our red wines are fermented in small open vats, the musts are hand-plunged every four hours and at the end of primary fermentation, basket-pressed. The wines invariably spend 15-18 months maturing in oak barriques; they are traditionally fined and not filtered prior to bottling. Strict hygiene and constant monitoring from fermentation to bottling ensures that the soundness of the fruit from the vineyard remains the same in the bottle.
