Summary

Barbera is a well-known Italian grape variety. Barbera d’Anunda takes its name from its home town appellation, Tanunda, in the Barossa Valley, and its un-canny similarities with Barbera d’Alba – the famous appellation for Barbera in the Piedmont, Italy. A play on words, but the variety is true to Australian Barbera character.

We have only produced 100 cases of this wine and we have bottled it young and fresh – to enjoy its vibrancy and “drink now” qualities.

Vinification

Fruit has been sourced from the northern part of the Barossa Valley and was picked on the 11th April 2012. The wine was matured in 2 & 3 year old French Oak barriques for 9 months. No fining or filtration.

Colour

Bright garnet core with rim displaying vivid cherry hues.

Nose

Lifted floral notes and red berries.

Palate

Supple and elegant palate with fine tannins – a medium weighted drink. Vibrant and fresh with lots of bright red berries & Satsuma plums mixed with savoury notes of spice such as fennel and cardamom.

Notes
