Winery & Vintage Info

Sangiovese is a thin-skinned variety like Nebbiolo, known for its herbal & spice notes more than its fruity notes. It has an attractive mid red colour and is characterised by high levels of tannin, well balanced by acid. It is suited for well drained soils with abundant sunlight, both of which the Heathcote vineyard provides.

The fruit for the Tar & Roses Heathcote Sangiovese 2022 vintage was machine harvested into 2.5t steel bins. Transported directly to the winery for immediate processing. Crushed to static fermenters it was pumped over twice a day for approximately 20mins each time, during which time the temperature and acid levels were monitored constantly and adjusted when necessary. After completing fermentation the wine was pressed to tank using an air bag press. It was racked off gross lees to barrel for maturation in mainly older used barriques. The barrels were checked and topped each month. Bottled 21st August 2023.
