The Blood of Jupiter celebrates all that is joyous about the Sangiovese grape. For the first time in AB&D's recent histroy, the Blood of Jupiter is a straight Sangiovese from a single vineyard.

Morello cherries, dusty, dark chocolate, blood oranges and warm spices on the nose. Soft and full palate weight with supportive tannins to the finish. Playful and active –it lights up all the parts of your mouth. An amazing thing, this wine illustrates exactly AB&D’s ambitions to nod with respect to European heritage but to have the courage to have a local expression.

100% Sangiovese is hand harvested from the Paxton 'Gateway Vineyard' in McLaren Vale which was planted in 2005 in brown Sandy-loam over limestone calcrete. Grapes are destemmed with rollers out, retaining as much whole berry as possible and fermented until dry on skins(10 days) with wild yeast. The wine spends 12 months on full lees in new and old French barriques (35%new). Blended into cask for ageing for 12 more months.

Pair with a juicy rare steak.
