Angullong Fossil Hill Sangiovese 2013



I'm yet to taste any truly benchmark sangiovese grown on Australian soil, but at their best locally, they are crafted in what I would call an intermediate medium bodied style with cherry flavours dominant and gentle (for the variety) tannins.  This sangiovese from Angullong falls into that category, and I think sits comfortably alongside some of the better Australian examples.  The 2013 release has aromatics of cherry, earth and licorice.  The palate has medium length and is balanced.  A nice wine ready to drink now.  G
