2018 alejandro Lagrein

In the past Alex Russell's Lagrein handiwork has been awarded two gold, two silver and two trophies for best Italian Varietal and best Organic Varietal at the Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show. Wine writer Max Allen describes Riverland Lagrein as a square peg in a round hole - growing so well having originated in the Italian Alps. Almost black in colour with black tea aroma, dark fruits and spicy French oak, this mighty red is not for the faint hearted..

TASTING NOTES: Brilliantly dark, purple red to black with concentrated aromas of black tea and black cherry, this wine has gone onto a combination of new and old French oak.  A rich, tannic wine with colour, complexity and oak - drink this with dark chocolate or rich meat dishes over the next 5 years.
