Sanguine Inception Shiraz 2020 is a deeply concentrated Heathcote Shiraz. The colour is a dense bright purple hue and dark red. Aromas of rich ripe berries, definitely in the black fruits spectrum with a complex array of smokey cedar wood, dried herbs, coffee beans and aniseed spice. The palate is deliciously juicy and soft for such young wine. Rich blackberry fruit throughout with a hint of aniseed on the finish. The tannins are fine and fruit rich so already wonderfully balanced and can be enjoyed now but will definitely soften and gain complexity over time.

Winery & Vintage Info

Utilising traditional winemaking practices such as small fermentation tanks, natural fermentation (i.e. no yeast additions) and gravity feeding. Whilst this can be quite labour intensive, Sanguine believe it ensures the preservation of natural fruit flavours and the Heathcote terroir character. As with all varieties produced at Sanguine Estate, the grapes were de-stemmed, lightly crushed and then naturally fermented with wild indigenous yeasts in small open fermenters. The wine is then transferred via gravity (to avoid pump shock) to predominantly French oak barriques (approximately 10% new) and left to mature for approximately 18 months.
