Jaeschke vineyard in Sevenhill subregion of Clare Valley provided the Sangiovese fruit for our textural and fragrant Piccoli Lotti Rose 2019. The alluvial soils recreate the ideal conditions for the vines to thrive and produce outstanding fruit.
Sangiovese was one of the best performing grapes in Clare Valley during the challenging vintage 2019.
