BH Nero d’Avola-Winter Red Snuggler

Wine writer Dave Brookes gave the Brash 2014 “NDV” Nero d’Avola a good look recently and liked what he saw in this weekend’s Adelaide Review: “Bruised red/purple in the glass, there’s a sense of earthy wildness to its aromas. Scents of rich black and dark fruits certainly, but it shows exotic souk-like spice notes along with hints of dried tangerine rind, rosemary, kirsch, citrus blossom and a resonant bass-line of herbal notes redolent of Italian digestive tipples. Medium-bodied and pure of fruit, it cuts a lovely line across the palate, showing great tension between the spicy, heady fruit and fresh, uplifting acidity. Great drinking. This drop is proof that Nero D’Avola is a variety that requires further investigation for the intrepid wine sleuth, perhaps several more glasses.” Thanks, Dave. Ad Rev
