2019 Halcyon Days 'Helios' Sangiovese

Hawkes Bay, New Zealand

It's Halcyon Days 2nd vintage, but by god have they knocked us all out of the park. 100% Sangiovese that screams raspberries and forest fruit. Fresh, vibrant and actually fairly light (only 10.5% abv). Elevage in tank, but enough oxygen prior to keep it stable. Soft tannins, crisp and crunchy acidity and juicy plump fruit. Thanks to Amy and Olly for the notes.

About the maker

Released in Australia for the first time this year, Amy and Olly Styles are a warm duo in New Zealand with a rich passion for the art of winemaking

Both Amy and Olly are extremely talented people, sourcing grapes from really unique plots land in New Zealand. For their first two years of Halcyon Days, the fruit has been purchased from an organic site in the Matahangi sub region. The soils are comprised of red gravel beneath loam, the altitude of around 300m makes for cooler climate. The wines are favour full yet fresh. Despite lower alcohol levels, they have fantastic structure and length. The acidity is present and the fruit is 'intoxicatingly delicious' according to importer Campbell Burton.
