"Bright cherry and brambleberry aromas with orange peel as well. Medium body, pretty fruit and a fresh finish. Drink now."

Product Description:

"Colour: deep ruby red.
Bouquet: rich and deep, with a complex balance of violet, liquorice, and vanilla notes.
Palate: crisp and dry, with a subtly-veined background of vanilla and wild berries, which carry through to its lingering finish.

The over 60 hectares of Barbera vineyards are rigorously selected by our viticulturists, all with low yields; every vineyard is participant in the “Superbarbera” project.

The cuvée is blended from vineyards with slightly different soils and microclimates so that the final wine will offer a better balance between structural solidity and bouquet complexity.

Vinification is traditional, with a 10 day maceration on the skins and a 28-30oC fermentation, followed quickly by the onset of malolactic.

The wine then matures for about 12 months in small oak, about 1/3 new; here, the wine, already impressively structured, acquires a multi-layered depth of flavour and character, evolving into a richly-nuanced barbera of grace and expressiveness." - Winery
