Barbera

Originating from Piedmont in Italy this red grape was first planted here in the Hunter Valley here at Margan. I took cuttings from the original Montrose vineyard in Mudgee that was planted by Carlo Corino from cuttings he bought from Italy in his suitcase. Its a medium bodied wine with great acidity. At full ripeness it still has wonderful acid that provides a style of wine rarely seen in Australia. Fantastic with any food with fat in it, the acid cuts thru enhancing both the food and the wine.

Breaking Ground Barbera 2015

Hunter Valley Wine

Damp tobacco, moist blackberries and cherries, chalk, varietal thick rose petals and drying tar. Fleshy, meaty body with a briny, ferrous oyster presence. Bursts of blood orange pips: both flavour and acidity. Fruit sweet enough to be swarthy but finishes with a wash of fine chalky tannins. Drinkability plus.  Continue »
