It is named after Avola in the far south of Sicily, and its wines are compared to New World Shirazes, with sweet tannins and plum or peppery flavours.

The beauty of Nero d’Avola is that in extreme heat it retains its acidity, which is music to the ears of our warm climate winemakers, who can craft a red that has a refreshing acidity, making it beautifully balanced.

Black fruit takes the lead, strong and proud, but is swiftly followed up by an amalgam of mixed spices, from liquorice root to cassia bark. Gritty but floral, this is a wine that is loaded with personality.

How to use it
