Wood Park Forgotten Patch Sangiovese 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Vibrant cherry red color. Nose of black cherries, strawberry and spice. Showing cherry liqueur, juicy sweet strawberries and savoury dried herbs with cinnamon and cloves. The 2012 Sangiovese is the Fifth vintage of this varietal for Wood Park. The fruit comes from vines grafted in 2005 on to 18 year old Cabernet Sauvignon root stock at the Wood Park home vineyard at Kneebones Gap. The Sangiovese varietal tends to lean towards a lighter style displaying strawberry and spice characters. It has its origins in the Tuscan region of Italy and is the major component of the Chianti.

Since then, Wood Park has earned its place in the forefront of that second wave of wineries from the King Valley with a strong following of supporters. The vineyard is managed with a commitment to minimal chemical use. Wine making is a mix of traditional and modern techniques including plenty of hand plunging in open fermenters and use of wild yeasts. In what has become quite an expansive repertoire, Wood Park Wines draws on fruit sourced from the diverse micro-climates within the King Valley and surrounds, ranging in altitude from 250m to 800m above sea level. Cabernet, Shiraz, Petit Verdot, Viognier and Roussane are grown in gravelly clay at the warmer home block at Wood Park. Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris from the cool Whitlands plateau, Zinfindel and Merlot from the high ridges of Myrrhee, and Chardonnay from Meadow Creek.� Wood Parks cellar door opened at the Milawa Cheese Factory in 2002.� It's been highly successful and part of the regions tourist attraction providing the perfect compliment to the fabulous bakery and wonderful Milawa cheeses along with a restaurant, art gallery and natural furniture making.
