Cherry Fields, Dolcetto, Unico Zelo, AUSTRALIA 2018
Clare Valley, Australia
A foray into a very exciting piece of dirt - known as Polish Hill River (Clare Valley). We once told ourselves, that if we weren't looking at the Adelaide Hills for the best sites for our varieties - it'd be Clare Valley. Inland, continental climate, warms days and cold nights. Not to mention slate-ridden soils that pebble all through the vineyard. It's the sort of thing that winemakers live for - and we're pleased to say our punt on this family-owned vineyard has paid off. That's not to take the thunder away from our tiny Adelaide Hills vineyard, which provides the aromatic spark of life to this wine.
A nose of bright, maraschino cherries, plums and red fruit - with a smoothening palate weight and svelte tannin structure, without sacrificing a tightening acidity.
