2021 Minim 'HITCH' Sangiovese
Largely, Hitch is a young expression of Colbinabbin Sangiovese (92%), grown by Chalmers in Northern Heathcote; a whole berry semi-carbonic maceration pressed after 10 days and aged in tank, topped with Nero D’Avola rose from the same site. A short maceration to temper the tannin and hold tight to acid and fruit. Aged over winter on solids in stainless tank and racked and bottled in late July with a small sulphur addition.
This wine is vivid, fresh and aromatic, with more bright red fruit and subtle tannins from front to back, the IDEAL chill able red and perfect for outdoor drinking.
