A vibrant, juicy wine, released early so you can enjoy its’ youthful beauty. Barbera has great acidity and tannin so it will live for a while. Grown by Peter Bird and Joe Drew in Wrattonbully, South Australia.
Peter said it was wonderful to see the quality of this wine, a reward for daring to be different & dabbling in a new variety. Peter planted this vineyard over 20 years ago, so ahead of his time! 40% Carbonic maceration for 12 days, all natural ferment, old oak puncheons.
