The Collective Review

"A lipsmacking, purple-hued, spice-filled, soft-hearted young red that rocks. The expressive, energetic joy of the barbera grape is laid bare. Licorice, dried herbs, vanilla and plum with a splash of sour cherry tartness show the grape at its youthful best. So much to see, smell and enjoy." Awarded 95 points, Halliday Wine Companion, Jeni Port - Published 02 August 2023

Tasting Notes

Upfront aromas of dried cherries are interlaced with olive tapenade, creating an intriguing mix of fruit and savouriness. The palate displays vibrant red fruits with undertones of dried herbs, all brought together with balanced tannins and refined acidity.

Winemakers Note

Fruit sourced from the Ferraro’s vineyard on Whalleys Lane, Myrtleford, was harvested in mid-late March.

The fruit was machine harvested and destemmed with some free run juice being bled off to concentrate fruit flavours. A cold soak prior to ferment was carried out to increase colour, aroma and flavour extraction. Wild fermentation took place in a static fermenter which was pumped over twice per day. The ferments were pressed after reaching sugar dryness to Flexcubes, where they matured for 8 months prior to blending, crossflow filtration and bottling in January 2023.
