Frederick Stevenson

2021 Barbera

Regular price

From the Ceravolo vineyard in Ashton, Adelaide Hills.
After 22 – 25 days maceration, it was then pressed to a range of larger oak vessels - some newer Slovenian oak. Matured in barrel and on lees for 12 months then a couple of months in stainless steel prior to bottle. Blackberries and dark cherries dominate the nose and palate, with a bit of mint and fresh acidity coming through which seems to reflect the milder growing season. Whilst full up front with the darker fruit spectrum, the palate tails off into some fine grit tannins and slight dried herbal (sage/thyme) before training out to cherry stone like fresh acid and slight orange peel / amaro breathiness.
