About this wine

The Stanley Lagrein 2016 is a quality, fruit driven wine, with a palate of Black Morello cherries, red plums, hints of Liquorice, tobacco, leather and vanilla. Soft on the nose, the effect of the oak maturation is subtle and noticeable, giving the wine balance, depth and structure with strong silky tannins and a spicy finish. Medium to full bodied, this wine is a great match with beef, veal and lamb dishes, Tapas such as chorizo, patatas bravas, pimiento asadas, or can be drunk for pleasure! New Zealand’s First Lagrein wine which will age perfectly over the next 8 years +

Lagrein is an Italian variety originally from the Alto Adige region of Trentino, in the foothills of the Italian tyrol. There it is grown at altitudes of 700-100m above sea level. It makes rich, fruit driven wines.

    string(1137) "Lagrein is a red grape variety which hails from the Alto Adige in northern Italy. In a region famed for its cool climate expressions of Pinot Bianco, Pinot Nero, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio it seems paradoxical that the heat-loving Lagrein variety should find such success. The Bolzano basin within the region is the reason for this anomaly; proving a hot spot for the variety and actually enjoying some of Italy’s warmest weather. In fact, only Sicily records higher average summertime temperatures anywhere in the country! Stylistically the variety has a deep, dark purple appearance with aromas of raspberry and plum. On the palate it is a touch lighter than expected with a faintly earthy, rustic backbone that vies with the red cherry fruit and cured meat tinged notes. Think of it as a weighty Pinot Noir style with just a touch of leather adding interest. Hugely enjoyable alone, it is a wonderful partner to food. Though still largely cultivated in northern Italy, the variety has travelled well into the southern hemisphere – a notable success can be found courtesy of Stanley Estates in New Zealand’s Awatere Valley."
