Vinteloper Mental Winery Sangiovese 2014
$75.00 inc. GST
Tasting Note: From 36-year-old vines, this one-off Sangiovese was a collaboration between Aaron Fenwick, restaurant manager at Orana, Josh Picken, Sommelier at Orana, and David Bowley, ex pro basketball player turned winemaker (Vinteloper). Aaron and Josh were renting a house in Glenside down the road from the mental asylum and converted the granny flat into a winery with 2x 500L vats, 2 x basket presses and 2 x 300L French Oak Hogsheads – needless to say, the landlord was not very happy with the winery! Medium-bodied with classic Sangiovese tannin profile, it’s savoury first then rum and raisin. With bright natural acidity, it will reward patience.
