2014 Amato Vino Teroldego

$40.00

Only 95 dozen made of this indigenous north-east Italian variety. Dark and brooding, earth and spice, florals and savoury herbs. A wine of great structure and assuredness.

Description

Deep, brooding colour. Dark black/redfruits dominate the nose: blackberry, dark plum, mulberry… tarry/charry and spicy, with heady perfume and brambly earth and dried herbs adding to the mix. Hints of cedar/pine and a dusty pencilly oak character – a fruit-derived varietal character rather than any influence from the aged oak in which the wine matured. Hits the high notes with floral tones, and the bass notes with intense fruit concentration.

The palate is structured and firm, however whilst acid/tannins are in clear evidence the palate is densely packed and sweet-fruited, showing blackberry, dense plums, eastern spice, tar, black cherry and cola. A bold wine, upright and structured, yet approachable in its youth. Best enjoyed with food.

20% whole bunch ferment, on skins for 22 days. Matured for 18 months in aged French oak, unfined and unfiltered, with minimum sulphur for protection.

Only 95 dozen made from a single vineyard plot near Yallingup.

    20% whole bunch. 22 days on skins. 18 months in French oak. 95 dozen. Oak adds a plushness to complex fruit/spice flavours. Hazelnut, sweet-sour cherries, fresh garden herbs and licorice. Long chains of dry tannin through the finish work to emphasis the wine’s point of difference. Oak aside you’d categorise it as ‘an intellectual wine’ 92 Points.

    A really interesting variety that hails from north-east Italy. This is a dark and lush with black fruits, chocolate and earthy notes throughout. The tannins are quite ripe and sinewy, while the oak is lashed alongside to add further complexity. Really fruity with a savoury earthiness that carries the long palate. 92 Points

    Hazelnuts in dark chocolate, blackcurrant, amaro herbs, dusty spices. Medium bodied, but dense and chewy, all those adult flavours and such fun to roll around the mouth. A veritable shag pile carpet of tannin, clean fresh blackberry acidity (and flavour), new leather and aromatic herbs on the finish. Charismatic, all right. It’s much more chunky than Teroldego from Italy, but a distinctive wine all the same. I’d say 92 or 93 points. I like it. 93 Points
