NERO D’AVOLA
Nero d’Avola is a black grape variety native to the island of Sicily off the toe of the Italian peninsula in the Mediterranean Sea. Its name, translating as “black of Avola”, is derived from the town of Avola in the south of the island.

A NOTE FROM THE WINEMAKERS

“Juicy, Bright, Zippy, Picnics, Sunshine”

SERVING TEMPERATURE | 16 - 18°

CELLAR POTENTIAL | Up to 5 years

TASTING NOTES

Bright, clear, medium purple in colour. The nose has aromas of bright red berry fruits and red cherry and the palate is quite light with juicy red fruits, a touch of spicy pepper, fresh acid and light tannin. This wine could be served lightly chilled to revive the spirit on a warm summer’s day.

SEASON

Vintage 2017 was generally cool and harvests were around two weeks later than average in most areas, allowing a good ripening period to produce fruit of high quality and well balanced flavour and acid.

WINEMAKING

The fruit was harvested by hand in warm, dry conditions in late February. It was chilled overnight before destemming and sorting by hand. The must was fermented in temperature-controlled open stainless steel fermenters with hand plunging. The wine was matured for six months in older French oak barriques.
