Mount Horrocks Nero d’Avola 2014

94 Points

By James Halliday

Nero d’Avola is Sicily’s most widely planted red variety, currently with much attention, its plantings of 1800ha on the rise after a period of decline. This wine spent 18 months in French oak, its crimson colour heralding a fragrant, spicy red fruits bouquet, the medium-bodied palate providing a zesty reply of the bouquet.
