Region: Riverland, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia
Varietal: Nero d'Avola & Zibibbo
Tasting notes: The freshest, zippiest style of red wine. A succulent, juicy, aromatic and supremely refreshing wine. A touch of ancient vine Zibibbo results in smash-ability.
Producer: A new venture in the Adelaide Hills by winemaking couple, Brendan and Laura Carter. Following their passions for Italian-inspired, textural and site-expressive wines, they seek to create Australian examples of Mediterranean varieties in an approachable and jovial fashion. From single vineyard Nero d’Avola, Fiano, and Nebbiolo, there is something for everyone here as long as you seek individualistic, natural-spectrum, energy-packed wines.
Vineyard and Winemaking: If anywhere in the world could make the freshest, zippiest style of Red - you'd expect it to be in the middle of the desert. Hailing from some of the most ancient soils on earth - The Riverland, is a complete underdog region that epitomises what it is to craft fine wine on the edge. Rich red earth, sandy soils covering limestone. The insane water-efficiency of this variety coupled with no additions in the vineyard or winery (save for a small component of SO2 at bottling) displays the potential for this variety to craft succulent, juicy, aromatic and supremely refreshing wine.
