Product Description:

2010 Whitebox Yarra Valley Sangiovese

 

The 2010 growing season in the Yarra Valley proved to be excellent for most grape varieties.  Perfect weather during flowering ensured optimal crop levels. Rainfall was reasonable and fell at regular intervals, and temperatures were slightly above average.

 

 

The Sangiovese for this wine was sourced from our family-owned vineyards in the renowned Yarra Valley. The fruit was harvested and crushed into traditional open fermenters.  A small amount of post-ferment maceration was allowed prior to a gentle pressing. Following malo-lactic fermentation the wine was allowed to mature in old small French oak barrels and temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks before clarification, blending and bottling.

 

 

Deep crimson in colour with ruby hues, the Whitebox 2010 Yarra Valley Sangiovese displays classic varietal aromas of ripe cherry, leather and violets. The elegant medium-bodied palate provides abundant primary black fruit flavours with savoury, earthy secondary characters substantiated by fine-grained tannins, to create a lingering finish.

 

 

Whitebox wines are fashioned with respect to terroir and tradition. Drinking well now, this wine will continue to develop in the bottle for many years to come.

 

 

Sangiovese is traditionally very much a food wine, and while it can be enjoyed alone, a good food match will bring out its full complex and rewarding potential.  The richness and earthy characters make an ideal accompaniment to beef, lamb or even game dishes, while its piquancy complements Italian tomato-based sauces. The medium-bodied palate makes this wine an ideal match for a lunchtime antipasto platter in the sun.
