    Description

    Like the hearty Italian classic is for a chef, this wine represents a winemaker’s freedom of expression. A means of discovering layers of flavour and textures, through the art of component blending. Whilst a meld of several Barossa grape varieties, care and consideration has gone into assembling a wine of balance and pure drinkability.

    Shiraz, Tempranillo, Montepulciano, Nero d’Avola, Merlot and Grenache all feature in the 2019 release. It shows a medium-weighted palate of wild berry, dusty chocolate and savoury spice.
