Fierce III Sagrantino

At the heart of our winery is family, the seed from which all else grows. Three sisters have come together to combine their strengths and passions to make memorable wines. With Fierce III, we honour our heritage, relish the present and toast to the future. Family is home come join us. Live Fierce.

The 2019 growing season was dry through winter and spring and it continued that way until harvest, producing lower yields and small berries. Lou (Miranda) was one of the first winemaker/vigneron to plant Sagrantino in Australia. Planted in 2009 with clone Ruggeri/MAT1, Richter/MAT1 & Richter/MAT4 on a single wire trellis.
The textural quality of this wine lends itself towards foods with sweetness, such as Gnocchi with blue cheese sauce.

Colour: Inky Ruby Red with purple hues.
Nose: Aromas of dried cherry, cranberry and ‘La Fiorita’ (flowering lentils) with mocha and hints of peppermint and thyme. Well perfumed and captivating.
Palate: Distinctive flavours of rich, ripe fruit, enriched with savoury spice and mocha. Powerful varietal tannins with texture add structure and persistence to this delicious red wine. It is all about the multilayered fine tannins.
Making: This wine was fermented at 20-28C in stainless steel tanks for 7-8 days on skins. Post primary fermentation the wine was matured for 27 months in used American oak. The grapes were harvested on flavour and beautiful expressions of varietal character reflective of the 2019 vintage.
