Hand Crafted Lagrein 2019

Wines By Geoff Hardy Stand: 4205
Story: Lagrein is a relatively curious north east Italian grape variety well suited to Australian viticultural sites.
Vintage: The 2019 growing season started with mild weather and below average rainfall. Some late spring rain provided a bit of relief from the dry conditions. A heatwave in January was luckily too early in the ripening cycle to cause any damage to the fruit. This was followed by a very mild and dry finish to the vintage, allowing good hang time and flavour development to the smaller than average crop.

Nose: The nose offers beautifully complex aromas of blackberries, plums and earth with a hint of spice.

Palate: The palate is rich and opulent with smooth flavours of plums and spice, complemented by a tight, lingering finish.

Pairing: Try with kangaroo fillet medallions served with a green olive, parsley and pine nut pesto.

Oak maturation: 21 months in seasoned French oak.

Cellaring: Drink now or to 2028
