From the isle of Sicily….to mainland Australia.
Calabria Private Bin Nero D’Avola, Riverina 2014
Smells dump you right into the middle of plush town. Roasting black Cherry, blueberry, fresh rubber and polish. Love the camphor smoke note too. Fruit first and juicy: ripe and slurpable sweetness but there’s enough spice to make it interesting, to make a point of difference. Lightly char grill some octopus, throw a dressing of olive oil and black pepper and a bottle of this. Make note of this gateway wine…with the these Mediterranean varieties taking hold, more and more shall we see their ilk on the shelves. Calabria have a foothold at the base camp.
