SAVE OUR SOULS Sangiovese 2015
Yarra Valley, Vic
Friends and business partners, Jason Searle and Bill Downie, have long been producing wine under their Save Our Souls label. Only recently have they dappled in making a Sangiovese with fruit from the Yarra Valley. The recognisable cross on the label is differentiated from the rest with the use of flocking on the label, which achieves a texture of velvet under your fingertips where once it was smooth. Good for grip and excellent if you are in the mood for caressing a bottle.
This delicious wine pours with a warm garnet red in the glass and is defined by aromas of black cherry, violets, slate and cassia bark. This medium-bodied wine screams for cured meats or pizza, with a more savoury palate showing notes of black cherry liqueur to start with a fine tannin finish.
Stockists: Wine Republic, Fitzroy and Windsor, and poured at Fancy Hanks, CBD and The Standard Hotel, Fitzroy.
