Region: South Australia
Grape(s): Cabernet Sauvignon and Teroldego
Style: Light-bodied, crisp white wine made using the tank method
On the nose aromatics of cassis/anise and that core Cabernet-esque blackcurrant. Tobacco leaf and mocha adding to the mix, while Teroldego offers the mountain herb and concentration. Medium bodied yet with some density to go with the finesse. Spicy red/blue fruits, coconut and star anise meld with a touch of mint. A potpourri of exotics, moreish tannin and spice galore.
Amato Vino was one of the first wineries we acquired through Burnt Ends Cellars and we’re immensely proud that their exposure has managed to grow tremendously over the years. Brad & Sharon are a super-chill duo making wine from two of Australia’s top regions – Margaret River and Riverland. WA is reserved for their classic styles of Chardonnay and Cab Sauv, while South Australia’s Riverland is where the lo-fi magic happens. Single vineyards, handpicks, natural ferments. Clay amphora for fermentation and maturation. All the wild stuff with grapes such as Savagnin, Chenin Blanc and Primitivo.”
