Indulge in the future and look to the past with this spicy incarnation of a varieta classica.

In the constant pursuit of taste, style and creativity, one cannot be constrained by limitations of fashion and trend. Indulge in the future with this delicious Adelaide Hills Barbera and look to the past with this spicy incarnation of a varietà classica.

A complex nose of red and blue fruits, layered with black olive and earthy notes is followed by vibrant berry fruit with refreshing acidity, fine grained tannins and a spicy finish on the palate.

Soil
VINEYARD: Macclesfield south of Adelaide Hills - 340m above sea level on complex sandy loam over clay with ironstone. Gumeracha in the northern Adelaide Hills - 360m above sea level on sandy clay over shale.
Vintage
VINTAGE 2022:Above average winter rainfall initiated healthy bud burst and minimal irrigation was required as a result. Spring was also relatively cool & windy which lead to some prolific canopy growth in parts of vineyards but also uneven flowering, which saw lower yields in many cases.
Cellaring
Drink up, but also a 5-8 year proposition.


2021 VINIFICATION:
The hand-picked fruit is destemed only and wild fermented at temperatures ranging from 20- 25°C for 6days on skins. The ferment is gently plunged which assists in extracting colour, flavour and tannin fromthe grapes. At the end of fermentation, it is drained/pressed and transferred to French oak puncheons toundergo MLF. Post MLF, sulphur dioxide is added, and the wine matures sur lie for 6 months
