Nero d'Avola 2021

Nero d'Avola 2021

I fell in love with the Nero d'Avola grape during my trips to Italy as a young winemaker.

The black grape from Avola is native to Sicily, the southern island at the tip of the Italian peninsula. I visited the vineyards of Avola, and was struck by their many similarities to our home in McLaren Vale.

Like Avola, the Vale is defined by its hot Summers and cooling sea breezes. My dream of a South Australian Nero d'Avola was born.

Now, decades later, we make a tiny batch of Nero d'Avola in the Vale, and the results don't disappoint.

After picking at full ripeness, we crush into our traditional open-topped concrete fermenters. We age the wine in seasoned oak barrels for one year before release.

This is a spicy, savoury red which bursts with black plum and cherry fruit flavours.

This wine is the ultimate match for Mediterranean cooking. I love serving it alfresco with simple pastas like my Fennel and Salami Recipe.

It’s as they say it is, nice and rich and full of berry. Good drinking now but should improve with some age. I would definitely buy again.

The second vintage of this wine is a ripper. The perfect easy drinking red. McLaren Vale is proving to be ideal for this variety. Sicily, beware!

Of course it's 5-star! Right up there with all the other wonderful Primo products that we know and love, and not too expensive to quaff enjoyably without the guilt over what you paid!

This is one of my favourite grape varieties. Love the berry notes, the deep colour and the smooth effect on the palate. We have a few bottles that we will leave to age. On my watch list for next vintage

First time I’ve tried this wine. Outweighed my expectations. Full of luscious fruit flavour and a lasting palate. Already reordered!
