TarraWarra Estate Barbera 2018

The fourth release of this label from TarraWarra Estate which showcases the exquisite artwork of Thornton Walker: “Composition with 3 Trees.”

TarraWarra Estate, Barbera, Yarra Valley, 2018

Cherries, rose petals, blue metals and ink. Elements of kitchen herbs, touches of licorice and vanilla. Medium frame with ripe cherry fruit while the tannins are fine, intense and forthright and rightly dominate the back of the palate. Neatly punctuated with juicy acidity that tries its best to temper those tannins. Their best release of this label yet.

RRP: $30
Alc: 14%
Rating: 18.25/20 (93/100)
