Nero D’Avola hails from the hot, sunny and dry vineyards of Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean where they create wines that have inspired our winemaker, Glenn James-Pritchard.
The ancient, red, rocky, volcanic soils in the driest, most northern part of Heathcote form the perfect site for Australia’s introduction to Nero D’Avola.
“Glenn James is a crafty winemaker…Here Nero D’Avola appears brightly flavoured, lighter form with amaro herb spice and cranberry acidity. It’s delicious, vibrant drinking personified.”
