Fionula Nero d’Avola 2016 - Mildura, Murray-Darling, Victoria


The Story

Nero d’Avola is a viticultural gift, indigenous to Sicily. From absolute obscurity in the eighties, Nero has risen to hero status across Victoria and South Australia. It relishes the long, hot days, basking in the southern sun. Fionula Nero d’Avola is sourced from a vineyard with a limestone based soil profile in the warm and dry climate of Mildura. Situated on the Murray-Darling, where desert masquerades as an inland sea, Nero receives the long days of powerful sunshine it demands. Picked to provide juicy and vibrant fruit flavours with moderate alcohol, this Nero is made to reflect and respect the local climate.

M+Q Notes

The aromas of fresh cherry, damson plum, and notes of cardamom and clove while the palate brings fruit flavours evocative of blueberry, boysenberry over a subtle but supportive savouriness underpinned by moderate tannins. This is an energetic wine, both intriguing and drinkable, perfect as a mid-weight by-the-glass offering.

Food Suggestion

Braised lamb shanks, brussel sprout slaw
