Childish Wines - Polly Sangiovese - 2017
Kersbrook, Adelaide Hills, South Australia
Single vineyard expression from the hills made with little intervention, instead, the intent is to listen to the fruit and act accordingly. Named after their equally expressive child Polly who at age 2 also did the artwork for the label.
Part of the Childish wines range by From Sunday winemakers. These are all wines inspired by and with labels created by the winemakers children. Also available in this range is the Willow Gruner Veltliner and the Milla Pinot Noir.
Polly was hand-harvested as whole berries, fermented dry as whole berries, pressed at low baume and matured in old French puncheons.
Aromas of blackbery, bramble and cedar. Later, candied Cassis and vanilla. The palate is tight grained but light with a refreshing zip of acid and plenty of flesh to drink on its own.
Minimal filtration, unfined and small doses of sulphur at bottling
