Vineyard

The 2019 Seppeltsfield Barossa Nero d'Avola was planted on the estate in 2012, with 2019 being the first vintage to be released. The vineyard lies on the Southern boundary of the Seppeltsfield estate itself and is planted in East to West row direction. The varietal's ancestral home is the Italian island of Sicily, where it thrives in a hot, arid climate. Its potential in Australia is also recognised for its ability maintain acidity in warm climates, over the course of ripening.

Winemaking

The 2019 Barossa Nero d'Avola is crafted in a 'joven' style - released young and without oak maturation.

The Nero d'Avola was vinified through the historic 1888 Gravity Cellar. Built into the hillside on a series of terraces, gravity guides the flow of fruit down through the winery to deliver gentle extraction of colour, flavor and tannin.

Maturation

'Joven' style - no oak
