Cherry. Strawberry. Clove. Fresh. Taut. Fleshy. Fresh picked cherry juice cascades over the palate, underpinned with the vineyard’s hallmark ironstone minerality and a bracing, fresh acidity that lingers long. The aromas remarkably showcase all 3 varieties, with Nebbiolo cherry, Pinot strawberry and Barbera blackberry all wafting up for your attention. Deep scarlet hue.
Inspired by young, unwooded and fresh Italian table wines, we have created a multi-varietal blend that is ideal to drink right away. An inviting deep scarlet hue in the glass, the aromas remarkably showcase all 3 varieties, with Nebbiolo cherry, Pinot strawberry and Barbera blackberry all wafting up for your attention. These fruit notes then morph into more serious tones of clove, anise, and wet earth. Fresh picked cherry juice cascades over the palate, underpinned with the vineyard’s hallmark ironstone minerality and a bracing, fresh acidity that lingers long.
Various clones of Nebbiolo and Barbera were allocated for Fresco, as well as our oldest block of Pinot Nero. The 230 clone of Nebbiolo makes up the majority of the blend and contribute tannin structure and perfume, while the other varieties provide acid structure and lift respectively. All fruit is cane pruned, shoot thinned early and then bunch thinned up to three times during vintage to control yield. This ensures even ripening and fruit flavour development. Nebbiolo and Barbera was cold soaked on skins for 5 days and pressed into stainless steel. All varieties were cold-fermented separately, left on lees and allowed to go through natural malolactic fermentation; key to softening the acidity in some varieties. The aim of this winemaking process is to harness aromatics whilst still extracting tannin.
