Ducks in a Row Nero D’Avola 2011

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.”
Mike Bennie 93 Points
