The Mêleé is a blend of estate grown Sangiovese and Shiraz, complimented with a splash of Langhorne Creek Malbec.Each varietal is hand harvested at optimal phenological and flavour ripeness and processed separately in open top fermenters.The Sangiovese spent 49 days on skins post fermentation before being pressed to oak. At the conclusion of fermentation, the Shiraz and Malbec were pressed separately to old 300L French oak hogsheads for malolactic fermentation and maturation.At the conclusion of maturation rigorous barrel selection and blending trials across the three varietals is carried out to maximise the expression of each grape variety to produce an easy drinking, food friendly style of wine.The wine is neither fined nor filtered.

About the wine

Tasting notes

Colour: Medium garnet core with pale rim.Aroma: Scents of crushed rose petals, black cherry, blueberry and subtle cinnamon spice.Palate: Sweet red fruits of plum, wild strawberry and blueberry come to the fore. Fine powdery fruit tannins delicately wrap around the fruit core.Each varietal has an important role to play in the blend. The Sangiovese provides velvety tannins and fresh acid line. The Shiraz provides ripe fruit density and richness, with the Malbec providing floral notes and red and blue fruits.

Expert review

Deep ruby-red colour. Dark berry, cinnamon and wood oil aromas. A big boy on the palate that’s loaded up with dark berries, aniseed and tarry notes. Good length with ample tannins to balance the weight

The Grape

Sangiovese

Sangiovese is a Tuscan red grape variety that has become the most planted and famous variety in Italy. You may know this variety by a few other names like Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Montefalco Rosso or Carmignano, but rest assured it's all the same grape, but it may grow in different regions. Sangiovese is made for food and shows with aromas and flavours of cherry, red berries, roasted tomato, balsamic, Italian herbs, coffee and cured meats, backed by cutting acidity and a good grip of tannins. The best examples come from Montalcino (Brunello di Montalcino) and can age decades!
