Pale crimson red in colour. A solera-style Sangiovese, a blend of the 2014, '15 and '16 vintages, this is less about upfront fruit than the winery's regular Sangiovese, and more savoury in character. A dark ruby colour, you'll find a decent amount of tannin from the older vintages that are blended in, and fresh, red berry fruit behind. Fresh on the palate, it's aromatic and earthy, an exciting expression of Australian Sangiovese.

Behn (Payten) and Troy (Jones) are two Healesville High School Graduates producing minimal intervention wines in the Yarra Valley. Behn’s dad Pete runs the vineyard side of things and has a long history working in organic vineyards and takes the philosophy into the vineyard. The Payten and Jones home block is in the upper elevations of the Yarra Valley and planted exclusively to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The home block is dry grown, a rarity in the Yarra Valley which means a crop is not guaranteed every vintage. We reckon drinking these wines is like experiencing a band live, as opposed to listening to a studio recorded track.There’s minimal intervention, a bit of ‘raw’ processes, and nothing filtered or cleaned up in any way. The wines aren’t 'squeaky clean', they are a bit 'edgy', even a bit 'raw'.
