Mercer 2021 Nero d’Avola
Translating as 'black grape of Avola', Nero d'Avola hails from the Italian town Avola, in Sicily. Like many parts of Australia, Sicily is a hot and place to grow grapes therefore it is comes as no suprise that Nero d'Avola is becoming a hero variety for Australia with viticultural sustainability second to none.
With a punchy nose of intense native floral this youthful wine has familiar flavours of contemporary Australian reds. It started fermenting with natural yeast and comes from an impeccable organically grown vineyard in Canowindra, NSW. With lovely sour cherry and spicy tannin this wine is a mighty crowd pleaser.
