Top Aussie red

Tar & Roses Sangiovese, Heathcote 2012 $23

This deep, dark red-purple coloured wine has richness and density, and good flavour concentration. It’s not your average tough, bony sangiovese. There are quite strong smoky, charred-timber aromas and abundant drying tannins on the palate, but there’s also rich fruit and plenty of extract. Now to 2024. 13.7 per cent alcohol. 90/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)
