The 2016 Italian is a blend of Nebbiolo, Sangiovese and Barbera – all estate grown on the Grove Estate Vineyards in Young. From time to time we make blends of our favourite Italian varietals that we believe are examples of the Italian style and flair. Fruit and more fruit mark the aroma and harmonious, delicious, medium-bodied palate. Acid gives freshness too, and soft tannins support the fruit, while leaving it as the star act. Nebbiolo and Sangiovese give savour to the mid palate. Yum. Winemaker Bryan Martin has incorporated his unique skills and ability in nurturing and blending this wine. The 2016 Italian may be cellared for many years or still, drink it now and buy another bottle for your cellar.
