Huon Hooke, The Real Review - 4/5 stars
Aromas of sour cherries, baked cloves, vanilla and tea. Velvet-like tannins, a plush fruit presence driven by a plummy richness provides an unwinding palate of concentrated flavours and textures driven by a crisp acidity profile.
A wonderful example of the classic Italian grape varietal being cultivated in Australia's high country. The fruit for this wine is sourced from a boutique grape grower who's located in the King Valley's sub-region of Chestunt. The vines are planted to the clones M6 and M7 which are recognised for aromatic complexity and supple tannins.
