The winemaking philosophy at Trentham Estate has always been to produce high-quality varietal wines at an affordable price, with an emphasis on full fruit flavour and palatability. Grapes are picked and crushed at optimum ripeness to produce the perfect flavour.
Sicily is the home of Nero d’Avola where it has been grown for over 500 years and is the most planted variety in the region. The vines are exceedingly tough and thrive in hot dry conditions. The robust nature of the variety and its ability to produce high quality fruit and resulting wine in a hot climate made it a musthave for the Estate’s vineyard. The first vines were planted in 2009.
This wine shows true varietal characteristics of a good Nero d’Avola - a very approachable medium bodied red with a delightful balance of ripe dark fruits and savoury notes. A hint of oak, balanced acidity and soft ripe tannins make for a long and satisfying finish.
Finds the point of balance between ample varietal character and medium-bodied presentation. The result is delicious dark berry flavours in a cool fruit flavour spectrum, plus fine, soft tannins. Perfect for an Italian menu. Drink to: 2024; Price: $18.00; Date Tasted: September 2019; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 93 Points; Special Value Star; Top 100 Wines of 2019; James Halliday; Wine Companion
