Mr Barval 2019 Vino Rosso


I have been working my through several Mr Barval releases over the past few weeks - and have been extremely impressed by a range with which I was not previously familiar. Mr Barval is the brand of much-travelled Robert Gherardi (who has worked at Moss Wood and Cullen) with Mr standing for Margaret River and Barval for Barolo (his wine love) and Valtellina (his ancestral home in Italy). This is a blend of merlot, petit verdot and malbec (how very right bank) that was wild fermented and basket pressed to produce a soft, smooth, easy-drinking style of considerable substance made in small quantities. Move quickly if you want to snap some up. 93 points. $30.
