A new variety for the Hunter Valley that originated in southern Italy. A robust wine with aromas of white flowers, citrus and celery salt spice. The palate is fresh citrus and crisp apple with a little white pepper spice. Flavoursome varietal tannins give structure and carry the fruit flavours along the palate. A versatile and food friendly wine suitable for many cuisines.
These grapes are grown in the cool elevated climate of Orange in New South Wales. The nose has the perfume of mixed red and blue berries, a reflection of the cool growing climate. The palate is a bit more brooding with blackcurrant and some cedar oak lending flavour and structure.
