A Northern Italian variety native to the Trentino Alto-Adige region. We source this alternative variety from our good friends at Wirrega vineyards near Bordertown in the Limestone Coast. This region is further inland and north than our own vineyards, and it produces fruit with a rich flavour profile and full bodied palate.

We had a warm summer with favourable dry conditions but with particulary low yields. This has given the fruit a richness and intensity. Conditions during harvest were excellent with steady warm weather leading to easy ripening and excellent quality. The additional heat during the growing season is responsible for the depth of fruit flavours, complexity and structure of the tannins in this wine.

The winemaking brief was to respect and enhance the natural characteristics of this variety, so we kept it simple. Fermentation on skins for 10 days was followed with maturation in a combination of new and old, predominately French oak for the final blend.

Try me with confit duck with roasted beetroot, fennel and a sticky plum glaze.

Tasting Notes
Ah, the colour of lagrein. It's so pleasing. Lots to enjoy here with layers of flavour from dark cherries, woodsy spices, cooling acidity and grainy tannins. While there's a fair whack of eucalyptus/mint in the mix, it would be tamed by food. Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion 2022
