Production

Hand picked off two vineyards in Kuitpo, Adelaide Hills: Christmas Hill and Yacca Paddock. Light red clay soils builds pretty, light aromatics and gentle tannin stucture. Grapes are de-stemmed and then undergo whole berry wild fermentation on skins until dry. The wine is matured for 18 months on lees in old Burgundy barriques.

Tasting notes

With a sweetly decomposing autumnal underbrush nose, the wine leads into a palate of ripe bitter cherries with a gently leafy tannic spine. Another deliciously more-ish Italianette varietal from AB&D best served at (drumroll…) tomb temperature.

Food match

Italian foods. All of them. And duck.
