ONE TO NOTE: ANGULLONG Vineyard at Orange in the central west of NSW, has released a 2016 'Fossil Hill' Sangiovese that's named after significant fossil sites more than 450 million years old and discovered around the 1890s on the-now Angullong vineyards.
Angullong once lay under the sea and has been inhabited through the millennia by some of our earliest forms of life, with these reflected in the 263 species of fossils that have been found there. As well, in mid this year a network of significant limestone caves on the property known as the Cleifden Caves was added to the NSW State Heritage Register.
And wine-wise, a now-available 2016 vintage Angullong 'Fossil Hill' Sangiovese is a nicely medium to lighter bodied drop with flavours suggesting blueberries and sour cherries, and a touch of spice.
With subtle tannins as well it's a nice one at a suggested $26 to enjoy with tomato-based pastas and pizzas.
WINESPEAK: CLEAN is an expression used to mean that a wine is not showing any obvious faults to it, or any out-of-place flavours or aromas.
 IF you like tomato-based pastas and pizzas, this is a wine to go ideally with both.
