Angullong Fossil Hill Barbera 2017

From 14 year old vineyards in the foothills of the Mount Canobolas in the Orange region of New South Wales.

Angullong, Fossil Hill, Barbera, Orange, 2017

There’s always a shiny, polished element to “new world” Italians produced and while that is somewhat evident here, this is still a respectful nod to the Piedmontese variety. Aromatic: Cherry, blackberry, tobacco and violets are all prominent. The palate focused with a youthful, linear stature: unencumbered by excess. The tannins knitted fine and tight and drying just enough at the knell to suggest a medium term future.

RRP: $26
Alc: 14.5%
Rating: 17.25/20
