Wines - 2014 YP Sete Di Vino (last vintage) - on special
Sete di Vino. A thirst for wine. We all have a thirst for wine and our 2014 model features a blend of Primitivo and Barbera, fermented with wild yeasts and aged in old, seasoned French oak barrels for 14 months. If you’ve been following this wine over the last few years, you’ll notice that the blend changes with the vintage conditions; if you a new to the wine all you need to know is that it is delicious. The idea is to utilise the most delicious, simpatico grape varieties from a given vintage and produce a wine that is just pure, juicy and downright lovely to drink. And the 2014 Sete di Vino is just that.
Mid red/purple in colour with a bright, lifted aromatic profile showing fruit characters of juicy plums and blue fruits with some higher tones of fragrant mulberry and some cranberry crunch. Hints of dried orange rind, Asian spice, earth, dark licorice and wafts of balsamic and violets complete the picture. At the lighter end of medium-bodied with a fresh, energetic entry, the flavours from the nose are neatly transposed onto the palate. With rich plummy fruits, sheathed in spice flowing seamlessly across the tongue. It’s sprightly and crisp on the finish, there’s tannin in place, but it’s fine and ripe and provides gentle support to the lovely pure fruit. Don’t be afraid to pop this one in the fridge for half an hour as the weather warms up and try with charcuterie or pasta dishes.

My first contact with Susan and Michael was via Twitter. I was keen to try their wines and they were keen to get a hold of some Tassie Pinot Noir. So, we swapped some wines, easy. As a result one of the wines I received was this very cool red.
Then, on a trip to the Barossa, I took along some more Tassie Pinots and called in to see them. What great people they are! Personable, engaging and so generous with their time.
The 2014 Sete Di Vino is a blend of Primitivo (78%) and Barbera (22%) it spent 14 months in old French Oak and was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Okay, it is just medium bodied but gee it has some really nice juicy fruit on the palate and what a crowd pleaser! I took it to some friends place on the weekend because they were firing up their pizza oven. I took three wines including this one. Well, the response I got were pretty amazing. Everyone wanted more of the Sete Di Vino. Comments such as, “That is gorgeous” and, “Ooooh, that is good. Did we only have one bottle?” says it all really.
Yes, it goes well with pizza and maybe it is a pizza wine but to me it is more than that and it deserves to be treated so. I reckon it would go okay with Chilli Con Carne or even some lamb koftas. I’ll have to get some more and find out.
Sete Di Vino “a thirst for wine” and at $25, I definitely have a thirst for more of this wine. Get on it!
