Vineyard Selection

A 2-hectare plot of Sangiovese H6V9 clone vines were planted in 1995 on the Georgiadis Estate. The soil is sand over yellow clay with scattered ironstone buckshot. Great attention to detail on vine management with detail pruning and shoot thinning every year. One bunch per lignified shoot with smaller bunch configuration than most Sangiovese. Grown to an upright canopy with large antlers replicating a goblet system. Moisture monitoring to apply water at critical times.

Winemaking

The Sangiovese was specifically hand-picked for the production of rose’ on the 6th March. Picked to retain the natural grape acidity and delicate aroma profile, the grapes were harvested at daylight and whisked away to the winery for processing. The Grapes were crushed and immediately basket pressed to barrel for a natural fermentation.
