Additional Information
Vineyard

The fruit for the 2018 Piccoli Lotti Nero D’Avola was sourced from McLaren Vale vineyards. Hand-picking ensured the best quality fruit was used to produce this wine.

Growing Conditions

A wet growing season in McLaren Vale set the stage for healthy vines, leading up to the 2018 vintage. Rainfall during Spring and Summer was lower than average, with warm days and cooler nights during February producing great-quality fruit for harvest.

Winemaking

A hands-off winemaking approach was chosen to create our 2018 Piccoli Lotti Nero D’Avola. It underwent carbonic maceration in small batch bins, followed by fermentation and regular hand-plunging. The ferment was then pressed into French oak hogsheads to mature.

Winemaking Notes

The 2018 McLaren Vale Nero D’Avola is a bright cherry red colour, with aromas of blackberries, pink peppercorns and a hint of fresh red pepper. The palate is medium-bodied with a linear fruit profile. It displays good length and a refined finish.

To be enjoyed now, as well as cellared for the next five years.
