Nero d'Avola * 75cl * 14.5% ABV * McLaren Vale, Australia
This Italian grape variety thrives in the almost Mediterranean climate of the McLaren Vale in Oz. Watch out - because we can see there being more Nero d'Avolas from the new world fast approaching. This trail blazer though is fruit forward and great for early drinking.
The wine opens with a bright nose of sweet wildberries, sage flowers and aniseed. The palate is light to medium bodied with juicy plum and cherry. Fresh and clean with silky tannins and balanced acidity.
