Meat: Chargrilled lamb chops with garlic, oregano and rosemary, served with baked spuds. Pasta: Tagliatelle with field mushrooms, good parmesan, served with wild rocket, cherry tomato and pine nut salad.
Matured Old French oak
Saturated colour of bright garnet, with dark cherry rim.
Boysenberry, leafy herbs, pretty and lifted.
Fleshy and ripe forest berry fruit, supple grippy tannins, fresh and crunchy, with pepper spice and sage. It has nice refreshing length, floral and sweet fruited without straying into the jam zone. Red earth notes and Italian herbs add a little complexity, medium bodied, moreish and delicious, buckets of flavor.
Home Vineyard, Sand Road, McLaren Vale. Growers Margaret Leask, Richard and Malcolm Leask. The Sand Road Nero d'Avola is a small block, 1.1 hectares, planted in 2010, on Richter 110 rootstock. Geology is Christies Beach Formation, alluvial fan of sand, clay and gravel. The soil here is red alluvial clay with some small, pebbled sandstone deposits from the nearby creek. Nero d'Avola is Sicilia's most popular red wine variety, well suited to the warm maritime climate of McLaren Vale. It is later ripening and generally has higher tannins and fresh acidity, making wines with deep color and full body. This is our fifth vintage of Nero d'Avola, arguably our best yet.
