UBERCOOL NEW ARRIVAL - TRY SAGRANTINO!
Mac came across the Save Our Souls range after visiting Melbourne and attending an exclusive and intimate private dining experience with his daughter and her friends. Though not usually a fan of the 'low-fi' wines favoured by the likes of the bright, young things of Melbourne's wine crowd, he can humbly swear that these wines are seriously good.
Founded in 2008 by Jason Searle and William 'Bill' Downie, Save Our Souls are 'not trying to change the world, just a couple of souls, one glass at a time'. Bill brings his considerable experience from highly-esteemed wineries such as Bass Phillips and De Bortoli to the table. Hailed as Australia's original 'enfant terrible' of the wine industry and the 'grand-daddy of the natural wine movement', there's some serious winemaking pedigree on show here.
Hailing from the Umbria region in Central Italy, the super thick-skinned Sagrantino is known as Italy's most tannic varietal. Save Our Souls expression of this full-bodied wine is powerful but brings a sense of fun to the party, with plenty of spice and juicy notes of plums and cherries. We can guarantee that this will be a new drop to impress the crew with. You have Mac's word on it.
Thge winery writes "This wine is fun…spicy nose of anise and dark berries. The palate has dark plums and cherries with a juicy centre. A back palate of crushed cherries linger."
