Half the fruit for this baby comes from an incredible vineyard in the King Valley, nestled at an altitude of 350m amid the foothills at Myrrhee and meticulously cared for by Dave Cavicchiolo. Planted in 1978 and one of the first vineyards planted in the region.  The other half is from a gorgeous block in the Alpine Valley owned and run by brothers Tim and Mark Walpole, both gurus of growing fantastic Sangiovese.  The beauty of this wine stems from both these parcels, and we feel very fortunate to work alongside them to create a wine we are incredibly proud to share with you.

What grape varieties are in this wine?
100% Sangiovese.

What does it smell like?
This Sangiovese sweeps you off your feet with cherry, alpine strawberries, and complexing hints of five spice and chilli chocolate, making it aromatic and enchanting…just like a handsome knight on a rearing stallion.

How about the taste?
It’s vibrant and mouth filling – cherries and blood plums, balanced by bright acidity with velvety tannins providing subtle support.

What food goes with it?
The higher acidity and tannin structure of Sangiovese makes it ideal for pairing with charred meat, charcuterie and tomato based pasta dishes. Spaghetti Arrabiata is one of our favourites!

Alcohol – 13.8% ABV

Joe’s Judgements

For want of a better phrase, this wine is seriously smashable! Sangiovese can be wild, untamed, provocative, elegant, tannic, soft and everything in between. When its well-made, the most delectable and superlative wine that you can get your hands on. Predominantly grown in Italy, the grape has now started to find its home in the new world, with Australia producing some high quality wines.

Cloak & Dagger ‘The Cloak’ Sangiovese 2021 is light but also rich and complex (sounds strange but bear with), with a smorgasbord of aromas, flavours and textures. Scents of wild raspberry, cherry and violets with an undertone of earthy tobacco and cacao. On the palate, tangy red fruits intermingled with dark fruits, sweet spices and white pepper. The acidity is fresh, while the tannins are robust at first, becoming silky and velvety with some aeration. A beautiful expression of Sangiovese.

Pair this with Italian tomato based dishes, roasted beef and Mediterranean chargrilled vegetables. Perfect.
