Sangiovese is the most-planted red variety in it's homeland Italy, and is the backbone of that country's famous Chianti that traditionally contains anywhere between 75% and 100% Sangiovese, with quite a wide range of other varieties making up the rest.
Mr Mick was never one to shy away from new and innovative concepts in winemaking. Many of these concepts became very successful wines, well known in Australian winemaking history. We continue this philosophy, adding yet another wine style to the Mr Mick repertoire and the rest of our range; an ‘easy-going’ wine that creates interest and satisfies many tastes. Being a popular Italian style, our ‘Novo’ (new) Sangiovese Malbec suits a broad array of cuisine, light in style with juicy red berry fruit and soft mellow tannins.
Dry-grown Sangiovese and Malbec, fermented in separate batches for a week on skins, was then gently pressed with part of the pressings incorporated in this blend for added texture. This wine has not been aged in oak, allowing maximum fruit expression.
