Three Bunches Reserve Sangiovese 2015

Red Wine from Australia - South Australia
4.000000000 star rating 4 Reviews
This Italian grape has found a new home in parts of Australia, but its Italian style remains well and truly intact. This is light in colour and full of aromas, such as sundried tomato, sour cherry, a touch of earthiness and pepper. The palate is bright, fresh and with lip-smacking sour red-cherry and plum notes.

South Australia

South Australia (SA) is Australia's wine heartland, producing most of the country's wine and boasting some of its oldest vines. The dry, hot climate ripens grapes fully, making bold, dense and concentrated wines.

The Barossa Valley has a rich viticultural history with patches of bush-trained vines, many more than 100 years old. It is first and foremost a red wine region. Shiraz is king but cabernet sauvignon, grenache and mourvèdre play an important part, too.

Close to the Barossa is the Eden Valley, a windswept series of elevated hills producing exceptional shiraz and floral riesling. Just north of the Barossa is the Clare Valley, which represents Australia's pinnacle for riesling, where elevated vineyards temper the intense heat, producing dry whites of immense class and purity. The region's powerful and muscular reds can be outstanding too.

On the coast south of Adelaide is McLaren Vale, which vies with Barossa to be SA's best red-wine region. The climate is warm enough to...

On the coast south of Adelaide is McLaren Vale, which vies with Barossa to be SA's best red-wine region. The climate is warm enough to guarantee lush, chocolatey reds from shiraz, grenache and cabernet, while its strong maritime influence invests elegance in chardonnay, viognier and marsanne. Nearby Langhorne is cooled by the lake and nearby sea, and grows grapes of very good quality at a low cost. These excellent-value wines are marked by a softness and fullness of flavour. The Adelaide Hills area east of the city are cool and provide the perfect ingredients for lemony sauvignon blanc and chardonnay. Coonawarra, further south-east behind the Limestone Coast, is South Australia's leading cabernet region, the unique terra rossa soil and maritime influence producing grapes with intense flavours and fabulous structure.

Australia Vintage 2015

South Australia had a mixed 2015, with a cool start to the season but a warm finish that meant the harvest came all at once, and some wineries felt the pressure on tank space. Drought pressure continues to be an issue in many parts of SA too.

Victoria and Tasmania, meanwhile, had a near perfect vintage, with moderate spring rainfall and a warm summer with no extreme spikes. A dry and cool March lead to a very clean and easy harvest.

Western Australia has had a decade of good vintages, but 2015 was a little trickier mainly due to birds devouring the lion’s share of the grapes in some vineyards, and poor flower set thanks to rain or hail. The grapes that did make it to harvest, however, look excellent but yields are significantly down.

New South Wales endured an indifferent vintage in the main, with rain at inopportune times. Canberra and Orange were the only areas to report success on any scale, though the best wineries wherever they are will have made the right decisions to achieve...
