In the past decade, we've seen more 'Nero' now planted in Australia, with the grape finding a happy home in the warmth of north east Victoria. Baileys are well placed to champion this grape too, with this mature, certified organic vineyard sharing a climate not unlike Sicily, just without the volcanoes and the Med.

With this 2019 release, Baileys have produced one of the most delicious Nero d'Avola in Australia. It's juicy, it's vibrantly fruity, but it's not sweet or jammy. An utterly compelling, high scoring alternative variety at a very affordable price.

Expert Reviews

95 Points - Jane Faulkner - Halliday's Wine CompanionText book nero. It's floral and flirty, juicy and tangy with vibrant cherry and pips; raspberry-like acidity plus soft tannins of an Italian persuasion.

How's it taste?

Bright crimson colour with lifted floral aromas immediately awaken the senses. The palate exhibits layers of cherries overlain with blue fruits and spice, rounded by soft supple tannins and a slightly savoury finish. Can be cellared for up to two years, but best enjoyed whilst young.

How was it made?

An even growing season without any heat spikes produced well balanced vines which allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and naturally on the vines and be harvested at peak timing. Treated softly in the winery with no crushing, to retain flavour and brightness. Gently pressed into older French oak to build complexity for maturation, and some in tank to maximise juicy freshness.
