Grapes: Nero d'Avola

One of the coolest wineries in Australia, Ricca Terra discovered that the terrain around their vineyard was too hot and dry for most of the Cabernet, Chardonnay, and Shiraz that their neighbors had planted, so Ashley Ratcliffe (owner and winemaker) switched over to grapes from around the Mediterranean Basin. Nero d'Avola is mostly seen in Southern Italy where it makes dark, brooding wines. In Ashley's hands, though, juicy red fruits, berries, violets, and nutmeg. It's shockingly delicious and delightfully surprising!
