The classic southern inky purple McLaren Vale Nero d’Avola is the latest addition to our family vineyard. This is the noble red of Sicily named after the small town of Avola on the south east coastline for giving the wines intense colour (Nero), there richness and longevity.

In the past Maria’s family would sail from the southern mainland port of Reggio Calabria and travel the coastline seeking out the finest examples upon release for their table.

The best examples have a dark, briary depth with notes of Amarena cherry and dark chocolate, backed by refreshing acidity and tannins with some elegance and polish.

We feel that this is another great full body variety that grows exceptionally well here in McLaren Vale producing fruit of immense character and style.
