SHERRAH NERO D'AVOLA 2016

0.00

From a single vineyard owned by the Petruccis.  Berries were cold soaked for three days prior to ferment beginning naturally, then over seeded with a mixed yeast culture to promote primary fruits.  Pressed into seasoned French oak and allowed to go through malo naturally, aged 9 months prior to bottling.

"It’s bursting with sweet red fruits, fresh mint, black jelly beans, and dusty cupboards filled with spice and dried herbs, though while it smells like a succulent little sucker, it pulls a little more dry and savoury on its firmly medium bodied palate. It’s dusted with fine chalky tannin, has gentle fresh berried acidity, and finishes perfumed and fresh. Drinks a charm. Like this." 90 points, Gary Walsh, Winefront

Sherrah

Innovative blends and exciting varietals - the first releases from a winemaker of renown.

A new label with plenty of pedigree, from the hands of the vastly experienced Alex Sherrah.  Alex’s winemaking journey began in McLaren Vale at Tatachilla, followed by stints in Napa and Clare Valleys, Austria and Burgundy, before returning to McLaren Vale in 2012 as Coriole’s senior winemaker, where he has gained solid exposure to the Vale’s emerging varieties.

Working with excellent sites farmed by first rate growers, the Sherrah wines are characterised by some innovative varietal blending, and a house style of freshness and drinkability.  A superb set of wines for this inaugural release.
