Our Multi-award winning Barbera comes from a small patch of vine picked as late as possible to allow the wine to be made on the vine for maximum fruit intensity. The grapes were cold-soaked, naturally fermented and then basket-pressed in the classic Italian style.
Available by the case only. Shipping, within Australia only, @$15 per order.
The result, says Skimstone’s Josh Clementson “is a very exciting Barbera with intense fruit – dark berries and currants – and a rich red colour. It’s low in tannins, high in alcohol, yet silky smooth.” Consider teaming this wine with a slow-roasted veal shoulder with lemon & garlic. Drink now or cellar up to ten years.
