About the Wine

Sam Scott's prowess with Italian varieties naturally extends naturally to Nero d'Avola. He gets the balance of sweet and savoury just right in this  release McLaren Vale.

As a wine designed for his own enjoyment, Sam has got this one just right. Nero is such an affable variety, perfectly suited to pizza nights - here is an archetypal example.

Additional Info

From the Producer

Keith Jenkins Vineyard and Wilpena Vineyards – McLaren Vale.

Nero d’Avola, the black grape native to Sicily has found it’s spiritual home right here in McLaren Vale, one of the best grape variety/region matches I have encountered.

Keith’s vineyard is a cool site for McLaren Vale as you travel up Pennys Hill road towards the boundary of the Adelaide Hills. Well drained Heatherdale shale and a warm west slope combine nicely here for Nero and also make for a stunning view across the Vale to the sea. The Wilpena Vineyard in McLaren Flat is a little warmer and lies in deeper soil, so it gives a little more generosity to the palate. Half the wine had extended time on skins giving the ethereal characters and the other half pressed earlier to capture bright and vibrant fruits. Synergy is the goal.
