2017 Chrismont La Zona Barbera King Valley – When they planted Barbera in the ground of their Upper King Valley vineyard in 1984, little did they know that the variety would become the foundation of Chrismont, and a first for King Valley. Today, they continue to develop their distinct style through meticulous grape growing and winemaking, spurred on by the Australian wine drinker’s love of Italian flavours.
Fragrant red cherries and plum, and a cinnamon spice oak background.
Dark berry and cherry flavours in a medium bodied palate. Aromatic spice and mocha complement the prominent acidity, finishing with fine velvety tannins.
At its best when paired with tomato-based dishes, such as eggplant alla Siciliana layered with fiore di latte, Napoli, mortadella and deep fried crispy capers.
