About

Here's a Nero d'Avola with some grunt. Known mainly as a fun and juicy day-time red, Nero sometimes lacks the architecture to take it to the next level. This version by Raymon Costanzo at Golden Grove has some serious backbone. The fruit comes from the famous Chalmers vineyard in Heathcote. Usually, the Golden Grove Nero is home grown, but hail damage did away with their 2015 crop. Luckily the Chalmers' had some extra to go around. They've nailed the style, which they see as a modern take on a classic Sicilian variety - a wine that honours their Italian heritage and also represents a new face of Australian wine.

What it Tastes Like

Chocolate, coco, black fruit and black cherry pie. Gee this is good drinking. Nice gritty tannin frames the vibrant cherry and licorice fruit. Still fresh and alive but with some nice detail etched in. Great stuff and ripping value.
