Tar & Roses Heathcote Sangiovese 2020 13.5% 750ml

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

Tar & Roses home is in Nagambie Central Victoria and produces wines inspired by classic varietals from the Mediterranean and was named after the signature characteristics of Nebbiolo. The name also ties back to the winemaking team behind the venture, the legendary Don Lewis and his winemaking partner Narelle King. Following the passing of Don in 2017 this represents the final vintage of his great career with Narelle now carrying on the Tar & Roses tradition. Tar & Roses produce one of Australia’s leading Pinot Grigio’s known for its characteristic dusty pink colour. Tar & Roses sources the majority of red fruit from areas across central Victoria such as Heathcote, an ideal region for Italian and Spanish varietals and classic ‘Australian’ Shiraz.
