      The Usher and Morgan families selected this mighty grape from Abruzzo in central Italy because of its deep plum colour, firmly structured tannins and perfect late maturation even in our warmer climate. Sometimes confused with Sangiovese from Tuscany, this regal variety excels with rich berry flavours, delicately balanced acid and sufficient delicacy to accompany and dish. We match it with crusted lamb racks, seasoned pheasant, rabbit risotto and richly sauced pastas. Rope in a few good friends and you’re done!

    About The New Name:

    Although the first four vintages exceeded our expectations, excelled at a National level, and have brought enormous pleasure and success, the SqRoot name just failed to resonate as hoped. In addition, the name SqRoot had no real connection with the history, interest and agricultural facets of The Overflow. We have added “1895″ to the name because that’s when the Joyce family first arrived. The vineyard is the newest addition. It brings vibrancy, life, zest and a connection with the terroir. Whilst an integral partner in the entire operation with its sibling activities, it has become our jewel. Therefore it has become The Overflow Estate 1895. What better name could our precious wine have?
