Breaking Ground - Barbera 2021
Region: Hunter Valley
Young vine Barbera from Ceres Hill vineyard. Comprised of earlier picks with the inclusion of whole bunch clusters. Barbera is a grape almost completely void of tannin, so the ‘stemmy’ complexity of whole bunch creates some light and chewy tannins. Indigenous ferment, no rectification, pressed off after partial ferment. Rested in a combination of stainless steel and old French oak.
Unfined/unfiltered. Pizza wine!
