La Prova 2014 Nero d'Avola

Hanhdorf-based Sam Scott sources fruit from around South Australia for his La Prova range, which highlights new-wave wine varieties at very reasonable prices. This is an excellent take on the Italian variety Nero d'Avola, made using grapes from the Barossa Valley. It is made using wild fermentation, 10 weeks on skins and is unfined and unfiltered, adding interest to a palate on which ripe, dark berry and tangy currant flavours are a major drawcard. Lovely stuff. $25.
