The West Australian

Mount Horrocks Nero d’Avola 2013

By Ray Jordan

93 Points

This late-ripening variety seems ideally suited to Australia. This one comes from Watervale in South Australia. Has a vibrant juiciness and lively palate. Lifted cherry and raspberry notes on the nose, with a little spice. The palate is seamlessly woven, with firmish tannins and crisp fruit acidity sustaining the long finish. Has a real tingle on the palate as it finishes very long. Exciting stuff.
