Forlorn Hope Songs From Mars The Other Kurock Aglianico 2020
Mat Rorick cuts a striking image, he is equal parts Henry Rollins, Lemmy & Johnny Cash. Before COVID times Mat would split the year between his home winery in the Sierra Foothills, and in South Australia, creating some ultra crushable drops. We managed to snag a little bit of that last release as well, we also have a pretty cool international project with this crew coming out soon...
Here's the lowdown from the High Hopes gang:
Organic Aglianico from Amadio Vineyard in Kersbrook (Barossa Valley). Long ferment, hand plunged two times daily. 8 months elevage in seasoned French oak. Minimum SO2 at bottling was the only addition.
Hello! It’s definitely Aglianico…. Bold and masculine. ferocious and grippy tannins. Herby and savoury. Moroccan spices. Get your lamb roast ready!
Region: Barossa Valley
