Product Description

Tasting notes
Saignee (Son-yay) is french for ‘to bleed’ and describes the process of how this beautiful wine is made.
It gets its vibrant colour from the grape juice having the briefest contact with the skins of some of our
best Sangiovese Black Muscat and Syrah fruit. Aromas of fresh berries and a hint of spice tantalize while the palate
rewards with lush flavours of juicy berries and a beautiful balance of sweetness and acidity. This wine is a wonderful
match with spicy or barbequed foods.
Viticultural notes
This Saignee has been made from the perfect combination of Sangiovese, Black Muscat and Syrah fruit sourced from the Granite Belt. The Granite Belt is situated on the Great Dividing Range 850m above sea level and 95 km inland from the coast. The winters are cold and frosty and summers warm producing a continental climate. Most of the region’s rainfall comes in the growing season feeding the buds and shoots. The soil is largely composed of granite, somewhat on the acidic side and is very free draining.
Winemaking notes
Saignee is French for ‘to bleed’ and refers to the winemaking process where the juice is left on the grape skins
for just enough time prior to fermentation to give it the vibrant and wonderful colour. The wine is then processed
like a white wine in stainless steel.
