Geoff Merrill GM Barrell Select Sangiovese 2016 (12 x 750mL) McLaren Vale

Description:

Preceding winter and spring rains were significantly lower than had been previously reducing crop potential in the important growth stages leading up to vintage. On average yields were down approximately 30% across many varieties in McLaren Vale.

Fluctuating temperatures in January and rainfalls in February resulted in a pause in vintage allowing ripening to occur at a more manageable rate. By the end of vintage, even with the lower crop yields, our fruit had more time to ripen properly resulting in very good flavour concentration, acidity and structure.

Expert Reviews

94 points Sam Kim (Wine Orbit)

“It’s gorgeously fruited and fragrant on the nose showing blackcurrant, sweet cherry, mixed spice, vanilla and roasted nut aromas, followed by a wonderfully ripe palate displaying excellent weight and velvety mouthfeel well supported by fine-grained tannins. Harmonious and delectably styled. 5 stars.” - Sam kim

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

The colour is a deep dark red with blood red hues. The aroma shows a savoury blend of earthy herbs and spice along with hints of plums, black cherries, capers and meaty notes.

The palate is strong and imposing with fleshy ripe fruits, giving way to a well proportioned mid palate displaying firm tannins, finishing with balanced acidity and great length.
