Grey Sands Vineyard Tamar Valley Tasmania

Romanesque 2018 ‘semi secco’

$45.00

Deepest red with purple hue.

The aroma has blackberry and elderberry competing with savoury meaty notes. The palate is marked by rich fruit in equal proportion to its savoury elements. An abundance of fine, dry tannins gives this wine a long finish. Best served with some substantial Italian fare or for safe keeping in the cellar.
This wine may develop a harmless deposit over time.

Description

The Story of Romanesque

Romanesque is a style of architecture and art that appeared during the ‘Dark Ages’ of Europe, following the fall of the Roman Empire. Although solid and balanced, the style is an attempt to copy (clumsily or otherwise) the great achievements of Rome.

Yes, I (Bob) am the ‘barbarian’ trying to emulate the fine, stylish wines of northern Italy!

Our “Romanesque” is a blend of late red varieties in the style of the aromatic red wines of the Italian Alps. Medium bodied, high acid and tannins with a tight aromatic finish.

The blend began in 2005 with Shiraz, Petit Verdot and Touriga Francesca but we are now introducing Aglianico, Lagrein & semi dried Tannat to the blend.
