Che cosa desideri? It's pink and wet. Pure romance juice, no matter your persuasion. Eat some vongole, read some poetry, take your pants off. Our cup runneth over.69% Nebbiolo31% Nebbiolo100% Nebbiolo
A dry rosato made from handsome nebbiolo fruit off the Hoffmann vineyard in the Barossa Valley. Picked early, the juices said arrivederci to their skins after a short but satisfying love-making session. The naked juice was then left to naturally froth in a tank before being summoned to a romp in some well seasoned oak where it spent some time being worked on its knees. Bottled with una piccola quantità di zolfo.
This year sees the return to a more classic vino da tavola style more reminiscent of 2015 than 2016. An easy drinking white wine of maximum refreshment but enough character to stand up to Roberto Benigni on a bad day.100% Garganega100% Belladonna
We've travelled back to Veneto, leaving Friulian skin-contact behind and instead seeking freshness and something more suited to drinking with anchovies in the hot sun, naked. Giovanni ama le acciughe. Garganega from our regular vineyard near Mt Crawford in the very southern Barossa Valley. Left overnight on skins, pressed to tank for a full solids ferment and then left to marinade for long enough but not too long until al dente. A simple wine for overly complicated, temperamental and highly emotional people. Rilassati, per favore.
Rosso Del Giorno
An enthusiastic, vibrant and devoutly Catholic red wine for drinking with il diavolo and pepperoni pizza (Dominos probably) in bed. Cherries, plums, cigar box spice and dry tannin. Yummo.100% Sangiovese100% Stupefacente
Sangiovese from the Hoffmann vineyard in the Barossa Valley picked early for freshness and natural acidity. One portion saw an extended maceration for deeper flavour and softer tannin, the remaining half was pressed earlier for brighter fruit and "tannino croccante". Sent to old oak to get a little plumper and increase the "quality of flavour". Una piccola quantità di zolfo aggiunto.
