Scylla Nero d'Avola - 2021

A great example of this Sicilian variety. The trouble with nero is that it is often allowed to get too ripe, but when it's picked at the optimum time and in balance you get wine of finesse and elegance, like this one.
Ray Jordan, The West Australian, July 2022

Nero seems sublimely suited to the warmer spots of the Vale, albeit, the vines are young. If this is anything to go by, we have much to look forward to! Sourced from loams flecked with gravel, between Sellicks Hill and Willunga. A sumptuous nose of peppery kirsch, maraschino cherry and tomato bush. The palate, one of a pulpy effusiveness as much as a lithe tannic precision. This is not merely a throwback, but a generously flavoured wine of flavour, texture and imminent drinkability. Really delicious.
Ned Goodwin, Wine Companion, August 2022
