2013 Dry Land Sangiovese
Reillys first release Sangiovese is sourced from our dry grown vineyards and is made in the classic style with 18 months maturation.
This savoury, medium bodied wine shows true varietal characteristics of cherry fruit with an earthy mid palate.
Blended with premium Dry Land Cabernet Sauvignon (5%), the rustic, leathery flavours are perfectly balanced with lifted Cabernet fruit and pleasant spice to finish.

"Reillys certainly knows how to build them big, but counterintuitively the intensity comes from the fruit flavours every bit as much as the tannins. For those lusting after a sangiovese to accompany bistecca fiorentina, this is the go."
The Adelaide Review HOT 100 WINES 2015
“Juicy and bouncy fruit, terrific acid line and a very fine tannin framework. Feels chalky and savoury despite the richness of fruit. A neat balancing act.”
4 STARS & EQUAL TOP IN CATEGORY ~ Winestate Magazine, New Release, May/June 2015
“Spicy blackberry characters with excellent savoury elements. Subtle aromas, soft lingering flavours and nice tannin structure.”
Dan Traucki, freelance wine journalist, published 7th Feb 2016 on www.facebook.com/dan.traucki
“Beautiful purple colour, aromas of cherries and berries, vibrant crisp palate with oodles of cherry flavours and some earthy tones, lingers for ages on the finish. A great Aussie Sangio”.
Jason Miller, Que-Syrah, published 15th April 2016, www.que-syrah.com/reillys-sangiovese/
“Its always good to see a wine that tastes like the variety is supposed to. Not just some wishy-wash dry red from the South-eastern part of a continent. The Reilly’s Dry Land Sangiovese is true to label. On the nose there ripe dark fruit, but supported by hints of savoury black tea and a herbal sage edge. On the palate lots of acidity, and lovely sour cherries. Again more savoury black tea characters. Tannins are textural but don’t dominate. While its a medium bodied Sangiovese, it does have a touch 5% of Cabernet Sauvignon to probably give it a little more body. But you know its a Sangiovese with the usual characteristics there.”
