Sven Joschke La Eleanor Sangiovese 2019 (Langhorne Creek, South Australia) "...cherry, spice, rustic..."
"Sven Joschke’s wines are exciting and delicious"
Mike Bennie, Gourmet Traveller Wine
Sven Joschke, born and raised in the Adelaide Hills, has definitely taken the long way home. Spending the last 15 years abroad and interstate, Sven decided to ditch his life as a Charted Accountant and come back home to South Australia, swapping the Casio and spreadsheets for his ultimate calling, wine.
The mission has been simple from the get go – make it delicious, work your backside off, do it with love and most importantly, let nature do the talking.
"Making Langhorne Creek cool seems a by-product of Joschke’s winemaking. Again, sourced from a vineyard in the region, 2019 Sven Joschke Wine La Eleanor Sangiovese is a brilliant lighter red. It presents with an amazing garnet colour and fragrant perfume of rosehip tea, cherry juice, sweet spice and some unknown savoury, undergrowth notes. It’s fleshy in the palate with an undertow of tart acidity, more rosehip tea-meets-sour cherry characters and a light saltbush note. Sheets of light, chalky tannins shape the wine nicely. This is a delicious vibrant, crisp, lighter style red of high drinkability and interest". - Mike Bennie, Gourmet Traveller Wine
