"A serious wine" | 95 Points - Jeni Port
Sanguine Estate is a family operated boutique vineyard and winery located in the Heathcote region of Central Victoria. Sanguine's Heathcote Shiraz rarely fail to impress and the 2019 Progeny Shiraz is again in ripping form.
Vibrant purple in colour, the nose offers plenty blackberry and ripe cherry aromas with an alluring lift of spice and pepper. The palate is typically rich and dense with layers of blackberry and plum fruit with a subtle hint of fennel spice and pepper. Delivering impressive structure and length of flavour, Sangine's Progeny has a freshness and approachability that makes it ready to go now.
"95 Points. It is clear that we have here a shiraz specialist who pays close attention to style and quality at every price point. A $25 shiraz, Progeny hits above its weight in complexity and fruit vibrancy, all with just a relatively light dusting of oak (9 months in French oak and only 10% new). A serious wine, deep, impenetrable 'Heathcote purple' in hue. Hits high notes of violets, blackberry, briar, bramble and spice. Oak is ne'er to be seen but its warm, textural affect on the palate is. A hint of mint gives you a glimpse of the local terroir. Delicious. $25. 14.8% alc. To 2028. Screwcap" - Jeni Port, Halliday Wine Companion 2022.
