Overview

Barbera was first planted at Coriole in 1998. It shows youthful colour, low tannin and medium weight. We think Barbera has a huge future with its fresh, bright fruit and instant drinkability.

Expert Reviews

The cool 2011 vintage hasn’t done this Barbera any harm; indeed it’s done it some good. Super juicy. Excellent drinking. Minerally, peppery, spicy on the nose and then smoky, meaty, sappy in the mouth. Flings of violet and spice. Rage of lively flavour – in a medium-weight, tangy manner. Big ticks for drinkability. 90 Points – Campbell Mattinson, Winefront

There may have been a fair bit of pooh-poohing the 11 reds, but those who know their vineyards still produced the goods. This was eminently drinkable in that non wine wanker way, I did not really have to search for profound descriptors other than this wine is a comforting glass of Italian informality. There’s good structure, it smells attractive in a sweet and savoury mould, the fruit is ripe, the tannins juicy, the acids crunchy and the finish long. I’d be very happy drinking this with a pizza. 92 Points – Patrick Haddock, Wining Pom.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The 2011 wine is lifted and aromatic. Sour cherry and spice on the nose.

Palate

The palate is medium bodied with bright fruit, red berries and a hint of earthiness. A soft, elegant style with clean acidity and fine balance.
