Growing Conditions
Sourcing clones from various regions across Australia, Langi’s first Sangiovese block was planted in 1992 and saw its first harvest in 1998. This wine is sourced from the Hollows Vineyard located on the Northern slope of the Mount Langi Ghiran. The Hollows vineyard was established after Trevor Mast had completed an exhaustive search for land to expand the estate’s vineyard area. The site was chosen for its protection from the cold south westerlies and its variety of aspects and high-quality soils – very similar, in fact, to the estate’s original plantings. The 2015 Hollows Sangiovese reflects classic varietal fruit characters of red cherry, chestnut, dried herbs and other savoury notes.

The colour is bright and clear, with the first stages of development. Intensely spicy on the bouquet, and more savoury on the palate - but without sandpaper tannins. This wine would make a brilliant partner to Italian, Spanish or other Mediterranean dishes.

It’s a little known fact that Mount Langi Ghiran planted Sangiovese in 1992 and had its first proper harvest of the variety’s grapes in 1998. It’s light in both colour and flavour but it still manages to make a good impression. This is an attractive style of wine. Cherries, dry Aussie bush spices, florals maybe, leathery notes. It’s fractionally developed, in a positive way; it aids the mellow impression. Big tick for drinkability.
