GROVE ESTATE SOMMITA NEBBIOLO 2017 WITH SPAGHETTI AGLIO E OLIO

The Nebbiolo features fierce tannins and acidity and its flavour profile ranges from cherry to rose to tar. This savoury smoky cherry boutique is tinged with such a strong structure, which pairs well with SPAGHETTI AGLIO E OLIO with that embracing olive oil, sharp garlic and red chili taste with a hint of green basil.

GROVE ESTATE HILLTOPS PRIMITIVO 2017 WITH LINGUINE CARBONARA

The 2017 Primitivo is from our original plantings of Primitivo planted in 1996. The vines now resemble a bush vine and with lots of hand thinning and trimming we are able to nurture this difficult variety into this lovely wine. It has a subtle spicy taste such as cinnamon, black pepper and liquorice and it pairs well with creamy dishes such as LINGUINE CARBONARA to offset the creaminess and bring out the flavour of the smoky bacon or guanciale.

GROVE ESTATE HILLTOPS THE ITALIAN (Sangiovese, Barbera, Fiano) 2018 WITH PIZZA PEPPERONI

The 2018 Italian is a blend of Sangiovese, Barbera and a touch of Fiano. “The Italian” is a light to medium bodied style made to be enjoyed as a young wine with food as per its Italian heritage. The Fiano is a new addition and this floral white variety adds a sense of mystique sexiness to the blend. This combination creates a high tannins and brings an acidity that will work perfectly with rich roasted meat, curried sausages, strong cheese and tomato-based sauces.
