Fruit laden and structured – fun, yet serious!
This wine demonstrates the perfect marriage of these two Piedmontese varieties – the fruit and acidity of Barbera melds perfectly with the savoury character and structure of Nebbiolo. Although it’s an approachable style from a single vineyard near Kersbrook in the northern Adelaide Hills (340m above sea level on complex sandy clay loams over shale), it’s also serious kit!

(a 50/50 blend): Bright medium red. Spicy aromas of redcurrant, rhubarb and anise. Bright and sharply focused, offering youthful red fruit flavors and a hint of smoky herbs. Fresh and precise, with strong finishing spiciness and lingering florality. Rating 90 - Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, July 2012

A beautifully balanced palate. The cherry spice and dark chocolate of the Barbera melds perfectly with the elegant leathery structure of the Nebbiolo
Porcini mushroom risotto; smoked tea duck; cured pork sausage
Drink up, but also a 5-8 year proposition.
