About The Wine
In a region steeped in tradition, it is heartening to see innovation in winemaking and varietal selection here from Brad Wehr in Margaret River.
The fruit for the Amato Vino Teroldego - say that three times fast - is sourced from a single vineyard near Yallingup in Margaret River. 20% of the fruit is whole bunch fermented and sat on skins for 21 days. It sees 18 months in oak, but due to a characteristic of the variety which has a distinctive “oaky character” anyway, it only sees old wood.
Ripe, unapologetic and oozing a bombastic persona, this is one great little wine that will have your dinner guests asking plenty of questions.
In essence, it's a delicious, food-friendly red with big personality.
