Mount Horrocks Nero d’Avola 2021

Inspired by the wines of Sicily, Stephanie planted Mount Horrocks’ Nero d’Avola vineyard in 2007.
The grapes are harvested by hand, then cold-soaked prior to a nine day ferment. Daily plunging ensures ideal extraction until the wine is racked to French oak barriques (20% new) for twelve months maturation prior to bottling.

Less new oak is used to maintain its juicy palate.


Tasting Notes:

Bright crimson-purple. Characteristic floral, raspberry and strawberry notes leap from the glass.

Those juicy berries flow through on the palate, along with cherry, cocoa and a hints of spice. Bright and lively, with tasty tannins, and a light savoury edge. Really food-friendly and drinking well in its youth.

Dangerously drinkable. Cellar 5-6 years.
