Nero d'Avola is the black grape native to Sicily and is grown here in the sunshine and warmth of Penrice in the Barossa Valley. Soft, succulent, red and black fruits with a silky, textural finish. Delicious drinking.
Succulent and savoury. Sangiovese 42% - Adelaide Hills / Nero d'Avola 39% - Riverland/Lagrein 13% - Adelaide Hills /Primitivo 6% - Langhorne Creek.
The most versatile and food friendly grape of all the Italian varietals. Bright cherries, tar and a firm savoury finish. Medium bodied and elegant.
Lagrein is a north-eastern Italian grape variety grown here in Mt. Crawford. Full flavoured yet medium bodied, black and blue berries, with an earthy, mineral quality which gives it vibrancy and makes it very moorish.
While crunchy and bright it also has a touch of savouriness to finish off.
From two elevated and mature vineyards, one in Basket Range and the other Forest Range. A mix of clones (777, MV6, 115, 114) fermented with natural yeasts and about 30-ish% whole bunches. Old French oak only and bottled early to capture the lift, fragrance and vibrancy we love about Pinot.
A synergistic blend of four distinctly different varieties. The juicy dark fruits of Shiraz provide richness; Sangiovese the savoury grip; Aglianicio for rustic charm and Lagrein for structure and length.
A cool, uncertified, biodynamically grown vineyard high in the southern Adelaide Hills, elevation of 400m, Yakka territory . Hand picked, natural ferment, old oak, unfined and un-filtered.
Nero grows particularly well in the Vale's mediterranean climate and its proximity to the mid-coast. Rich, succulent, red and black fruits with a silky, textural finish. Delicious drinking.
Primitivo repsonds well to the hot days and cool nights of Langhorne Creek. This wine is generous and opulent, like a 1970's shag pile carpet.
