La Gallina, is Spanish for 'The hen'. Apt we think, given this wine is made using Spanish grape varieties in large part and is very Spanish in style.
The fruit for this Syrah, Sangiovese, Merlot blend was selected from a range of vineyards situated in both Heathcote and the Bendigo appellations. The vineyards are either managed or supervised by Bress and are all at least 10 years old. We endeavour to ensure that crops are no greater than 2.5 tonne to the acre and it is this cropping level that gives the wine such concentration.
Colour: An intense and vibrant pungent crimson, almost inky blue.
Nose: The wine offers a complex array of fruit aromas of black fruit, spice, cloves and liquorice.
Palate: Tightly packed full of black fruit, spice, cloves, and liquorice. The grape tannins are soft and are beautifully integrated into the wine, giving the wine structure and adding power, balance and a savoury richness.
