2018 Mount Horrocks Nero d’Avola

180 cases produced

This is the seventh release of Stephanie’s wonderful Sicily-inspired Nero D’Avola – a wine that with its moderate weight, juicy fruit and lively tannins, delivers a delicious alternative to Clare Valley’s cabernets and shiraz.

Hand harvested grapes are cold-oaked prior to a nine day ferment with daily plunging to ensure ideal colour, flavour and tannin extraction. The wine then spends twelve months maturation in French oak barriques (20% of which are new) prior to bottling and ageing prior to release.

 

Tasting Notes:

Bright red with lifted, generous red berry fruits.

Bursting with cherry and other red berries, lively spice and a crisp, tangy edge. So fresh and zippy, with typical ‘Italian’ minerality, gentle but firm tannins and long-lasting fruitiness on the palate.

Dangerously more-ish. Enjoy now to five to eight years.
