This is the eighth release of Stephanie’s wonderful Sicily-inspired Nero D’Avola – a wine with moderate weight, juicy fruit and lively tannins.
Hand harvested grapes are cold-oaked prior to a seven day ferment with daily plunging to ensure ideal colour, flavour and gentle tannin extraction. The wine then spends twelve months maturation in French oak barriques (20% of which are new) prior to bottling and being held for eight months prior to release.
Bright red with lifted, generous red berry fruits. Bursting with tart cherry and other red berries, this is a lively, bright red of moderate weight and terrific appeal. There’s a clever balance of fruit lift and savoury tannins that makes the wine very more-ish. Drink now to eight to ten years.
