Region: South Australia
Grape(s): Nero d’Avola + Vermentino
Style: Light-bodied, crisp sparkling wine made using the ancestral method
A happy marriage of Vermentino and Nero d’Avola, fermented separately, the blended together. Sticky-textured with cotton candy fruitiness and hints of peppery spice. The fine fizz makes this wine just slide across the palate and finish with a punch of perky vitality. Neat and tidy, even when it warmed up a bit. Wicked value, done oh so well.

They were born and raised in the Riverland, surrounded by vineyards and the mighty Murray River. Organically grown, minimal intervention, honest, hand-made wines that not only are great fun to drink, but represent the sun, the red dirt and uniquely Australian terroir of the Riverland.
