2013 Hither & Yon Nero Davola

Made by brother winemakers Richard and Malcolm Leask in McLaren Vale, this is a great example of one of my favorite new varietals being produced in Australia. Nero D'avola, originally from Italy, seems well suited to the Vale. I look forward to watching the progression of this grape variety here in Australia.

Plenty of raspberry and cherry to be had on the nose. Good varietal expression. With lush round tannins and fruit forward appeal, this is dangerously easy to drink. Drinking excellent right now and would likely do well with plenty of tomato based pasta dishes.
