Sang has come a long way from sitting on a red chequered table cloth next to powdered parmesan in a shaker. Like a recently dumped teenager, at some point Sangiovese totally reinvented itself. Or maybe, rediscovered itself. Now, it’s the person on the dancefloor you can’t take your eyes off. Light on its feet, assertive in its own way and downright joyous. When it comes to flavour, think freshly baked cherry pie cooling by the window. Pulp to pip ripe fruit, baking spices. Yum.
Every family has a black sheep. Hugh Hamilton wines happen to have more than one. Hugh's McLaren Vale wine family dynasty stretches back 180 years, when Hugh's great-great grandfather planted Australia's first grapes (thank goodness). Now Hugh is master of a most reprobate range of varieties from the classics to the more eclectic. When it comes to tasting these wines, you can expect to enjoy the difference.
One of my favorites shiraz. Decent price for the quality. Highly recommend.
