Reserve Nero d'Avola 2018

Originally from Sicily, the Nero d’Avola variety is well suited to the warm Mediterranean climate we enjoy in McLaren Vale. 


A relatively new addition to the Amery vineyard, Block 5 (between the legendary Block 6 and the creek) was planted to Nero d'Avola in 2010. The decision to plant it at Amery was made after Colin enjoyed a bottle whilst travelling, the wine made such an impression on him, he immediately knew that he wanted to explore this variety further. 

As it turns out, McLaren Vale proved a very suitable location for this variety, producing light, balanced, elegant wines, full of vibrant red fruit.
