$29 ea. (RRP: $35 ea.)
Open for complimentary tasting this Easter long weekend in the Wine Loft!

At Fattoria Le Fonti they know how the hare runs - not least because the surrounding vineyards are home to many of these hopping contemporaries. The house wine of Fattoria Le Fonti is named after the rabbit - the "Lepre", which of course is also depicted on the label of the wine bottle. The La Lepre is pressed from Sangiovese grapes with an admixture of Merlot - depending on the vintage 5 to 15 per cent. As always, these grapes, which naturally grow in the same vineyards as the grapes for all the other Le Fonti wines, are harvested by hand. The subsequent fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks to preserve the fruity aromas. The La Lepre then matures for eight months in used French oak barrels - after which the "young hare" is bottled. With its fruitiness, freshness and good acidity, it is the ideal accompaniment to food - simply and poignantly with a pizza!

The Poliziano Chianti Colli Senesi is a beautiful DOCG red wine from the family-owned Poliziano winery outside of Montepulciano in Tuscany, Italy. Founder Dino Carletti named the winery after the 15th Century poet Angelo Ambrogini who came from Montepulciano and was nicknamed “Poliziano”. Coming from the unusually warm 2020 vintage, this Chianti shows ripe red fruits on the nose with touches of earth and savoury tones. It is generous, vibrant and expressive on the palate with dusty, savoury tannins and gorgeous red berry notes. A lighter Italian Sangiovese red wine and a very versatile food wine!

Vinetti de Fiorini 2019 Chianti Superiore DOCG

1st Apr 2022 | Tasting & Events

$29 each or $50 per 2 pk
Complimentary Tasting in the Wine Loft

When it comes to Tuscan wine, Sangiovese is king. Although the grape appears in many appellations within the region, that does not mean all Tuscan reds taste the same and it demonstrates how different Sangiovese can taste. This Chianti has all of the classic hallmarks that wine lovers look for in a great Sangiovese. Fresh, balanced and expressive – a perfumed nose of cherry, violets and berries wrapped up in spice. The palate walks the tightrope between sweet and savoury with the fine grain tannins carrying through into a long finish. Chianti Superiore wines are aged for 1 year, of which 9 months must be in oak. They can come from anywhere in Chianti, outside of the Chianti Classico region. A delicious drop perfect for these cooler months!

Expressions of Chardonnay Part III: Mâconnais vs Margaret River

Friday, 25 March - Sunday, 27 March 2022

23rd Mar 2022 | Tasting & Events

COMPLIMENTARY TASTING IN THE LOFT
Friday, 25 March - Sunday, 27 March 2022

Join us for the final installment of our three part Expressions of Chardonnay Tasting this weekend in the Loft. This weekend we will be tasting two Chardonnay wines one hailing from the great region of Mâconnais and the other from the highly esteemed region of Margaret River.

Domaine Thibert Mâcon-Prissé, Burgundy 2018
Simpson Estate Elaine Chardonnay 2019

The Mâconnais aromas suggest broom, white roses, acacia, honeysuckle, fern, verbena, lemon-grass, and citrus fruits (grapefruit, mandarin oranges). In the mouth, the finish adds nuances of pine, quince and fennel. The wines are fresh and luscious as well as dry and well-fruited. They have good concentration backed by sufficient acidity to ensure their keeping qualities.

Margaret River is one of Australia’s foremost chardonnay regions. James Halliday explains the beauty of Margaret River chardonnay is in its contrasts. “It combines an almost shocking voluptuousness with an iron-clad structure, intensity with generosity, and sweet fruit with flowing natural acidity,” he says. Margaret River chardonnay ages well, developing in complexity with time.

We will have open Aladame Bourgogne Mon Blanc, Burgundy 2020 and Cobaw Ridge Chardonnay 2018 for complimentary tasting. These featured wines will be available for discounted prices throughout the weekend and week.

Côte Chalonnaise chardonnays boast a clear complexion with grey-gold highlights. Aromas consist of white flowers (hawthorn, honeysuckle), dried fruits over notes of lemon and sometimes anise, with a suggestion of warm croissants and honey. In the mouth it is fleshy, well turned-out and thoroughly sure of itself. It has a lively, no-nonsense attack with just the right amount of delicacy.

Macedon Ranges produces fine-boned chardonnay, with flavours that range from citrus to stone fruit and mineral notes, is found here, although the winemaking that can be applied to this variety means many variations on a theme.
