2014 Amato Vino Nero d’Avola


From the Riverland project. A light-bodied, red-fruited lush combo of savoury & sweet, showing complex flavours from earth/meat to spice/florals; with snappy acidity and a seductive, moreish palate. Enjoy it young. Only 150 dozen made.

Out of stock


Our second release of Nero d’Avola. Single vineyard from Ricca Terra Farms in Barmera, South Australia. Hand-picked, wild-fermented and matured in aged oak for eight months. Unfined, unfiltered, minimum sulphur for protection.

Light brick-red colour. Aromas of dark cherry and strawberry… dusty talc, smoky graphite. Exotic black plum, savoury black olive. Herbal notes of lavender, sage & oregano; eastern spices of cinnamon & cardamom. Earth, leather and spice… forest floor; tar and char.

Red-­fruits dominate the palate – juicy strawberry, sour cherry, sweet roasted tomato; also baked quince, rhubarb and plum. Eastern spice and white pepper. Soft, light style that is best enjoyed with food.

This wine is a unwooded, light-­bodied, and makes the perfect summer red. Delightful.

    A bright, fresh red from Brad Wehr of Margaret River’s Wine By Brad. Raspberry aromas are clean and primary, and it’s the same in the mouth where it’s light bodied and charming. The acidity is lively and refreshing. A very attractive early-­drinking red – 91 Points.

    A bright purple-­coloured, medium­‐bodied snappy young red, lovely dark fruit and an easy manner – exactly the kind of red you want to drink, slightly chilled, on a hot summer’s evening, with pizza.

    It’s a highly enjoyable drink. Has a sweet heart of licoricey flavour. Bold but cuddly. Put this in front of people and they’re very likely to say, Oh yes, I’ll have another glass of that. Smashable and more‐ish. Bright acidity – 91 Points.

    This is a lovely light-­bodied red with juicy fruit and some grippy tannin. It appreciates being chilled, splashed into a big jug and drunk out of tumblers with slices of Margherita pizza.

    A vibrant, juicy and medium-­bodied red. Tasting this wine is akin to glimpsing the future of the Australian wine scene – and it’s exciting.

    There are some interesting wines being made in the Riverland from southern Italian grape varieties, and winemaker Brad Wehr seems to be shifting it up a few gears. The wine sees 20 per cent whole bunch in the wild ferment and spends time in French and American oak.
    It is brisk and crunchy with red and black fruit flavours, shows sweet and briary fruit scents and throws up decidedly peppery spice in both perfume and palate. It’s juicy, easy to drink and definitely worth the price tag.

    …has all the hallmarks of a wine built for a light chill and splashing around in tumblers an a pizza night. It’s spicy, with cranberry juice perfume offering plush, red berry fruit flavours with a touch of amaro herb complexity.

    …a delicious light-bodied, red-fruited meld of savoury and sweet notes. Its meaty bite and ripe cherries are piqued buy a touch of baking spice, while generous tannins ensure a seductive moreish palate…
