  • Vineyard Information:

    A native grape variety to Southern Italy, Nero d’Avola also has made a home in McLaren Vale.  Premium Nero d’Avola grapes were sourced from our Zerella Family Vineyard only metres from the McLaren Vale coastline.   This vineyard sits at an altitude of 44 metres above sea level and grows predominantly in sandy loam soils.

    Winemaking Notes:

    Hand harvested at optimum ripeness, destemmed without crushing. Approximately 10% whole bunch clusters were included into the fermenter.  Cold soaked for four days prior to warming naturally to begin fermentation.  Hand plunged twice daily to ensure gentle extraction of colour and tannin. After 15 days on skins and at sugar dryness the fermentation was pressed to seasoned French oak barrels.  The wine was matured for 10 months without movement before being blended for bottling.  Naturally clarified and bottled without finings or filtration.
