Minim Colbinabbin Nero d'Avola 2021

Dark and spiced, lifted with vivid blue berry, boysenberry and black berry with a gentle earthiness. The palate is dry and dark fruited with soft powdery tannins giving persistent length buoyed by amazingly bright natural acid. This is ripe Nero, handled gently; structured and fruit driven while still having a gentle softness that brings the wine together. The natural high acidity gives length and balance. This is a very smart wine, perfect for the cooler months.

Sourced from the most elevated site in the vineyard right on top of the range, exposed to most of the days sun and cooler evening temps. A short 10 day maceration of destemmed berries in an open fermenter. Protected and partially carbonic for the first 5 days, then open and more extractive for the balance of ferment, with hand plunging daily. Pressed and rested in tank to finish primary ferment then aged in seasoned puncheons and barriques on fine lees for 9 months. Bottled with 25 ppm sulphur dioxide in February 2022 under Diam cork.
