2012 Coriole Barbera

Ralph Kyte-Powell
WINERY Coriole Vineyards
RRP 25

A number of Australian wineries play with barbera, few as assuredly as Coriole at McLaren Vale. This vintage sums it up - Italian savoury with an Oz accent. Berry fruit and a smooth mouthful with zesty acidity and soft tannins. (Screw cap; 14 per cent alcohol.)

Ageing? Drink over two years.
