The Wine Front - 92 Points
La Bise (The Kiss is French). Sangiovese sourced from Caj Amadio’s vineyard in Kersbrook, Adelaide Hills. Caj’s vineyard has 5 sites of Sangiovese and these sites have very different aspects and characters, Each year the fruit is specifically chosen for the style.
The winery uses cultured and natural yeast on a mix of parcels of fruit.
Ferment is 16 days long and at cooler temperatures which suits Sangiovese. The wine then goes to large oak barrels for maturation. The La Bise style is about fruit first so oak flavours are very integrated.
Sangiovese is a wine with texture and mouthfeel. It’s a wine that has density while maintaining its lifted fruit aromas of aniseed and cherry.
For a twist, a small portion of Amarone style Sangiovese which is dried for 6 weeks in the vineyard is made, fermented and added back to the cuvee in small amounts. This adds texture and mid palate.
