Hand Crafted by Geoff Hardy Lagrein 2009

Lagrein has its home in Italy's North-East, in the fantastic sounding Alto-Adige region.  I think this is a variety we're going to see a lot more of in Australia.  This example shows why.

Aromatically fresh.  A little like chewing a minto, cherry drop and bouquet garni all at once with its lovely cherry fresh, mint and herby profile.

It's an aroma that belies the savoury notes within.  There's a core of earthen notes, blackcurrant accented and all seasoned with pepper.  More-ish, savoury, peppery and great length all add to the intrigue this wine provides.  Top stuff.  91 - Very Good
