Gapsted Ballerina Canopy Sangiovese 2019
- Textured, savoury
Let’s see if you can guess what we’d pair with this one. It’s sangiovese, a classic Italian grape. It’s full of bright dark and spicy plums and cherries, tangy acid and hot-blooded vibrance. It’s medium bodied, so no need to look to any super-heavy food. There’s undertones of oregano and basil, giving that classic savoury character. A good crackle of drying tannins cry out for some fats to bind to - probably something melted, white and a bit stretchy. The round, wholesome feel of the wine probably needs a round, wholesome pairing too. It’s a wine to share, for food that’s usually sliced up and passed round too. I reckon we’re on the same page. Are we ordering or are you?
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

There are two distinct styles of Heathcote wine, which can get confusing. There's Wild Duck Creek Duck Muck at the giant end of the spectrum for Greenock Creek lovers (I'm talking 17.5% alcohol!). And then there's Jasper Hill, Heathcote Estate, Chalmers' new Heathcote outfit and some new alternative varieties that seem to be making it into the best weird and wonderful natural wines in the country. Think Shiraz here traditionally, but don't be afraid to try the Nebbiolo, Fiano and Lagrein from painstakingly selected vineyards. They're refreshingly delicious.
