A deep ruby red in colour, with lifted perfumes of dark fruits, plums and cherries and a hint of mocha.
This wine has soft, ripe tannins and a delicious chocolate-cherry finish.
2016 was a challenging vintage in Abruzzo. The severe frost in April damaged some of the vineyards. Even the summer days were interrupted by periods of grey skies and misty rains, which persisted into harvest. Yields were generally lower, and wines showed slightly less body and lower alcohol.

This Prosecco was made using the long charmat method. The grapes were hand-picked and the stalks removed before crushing. Soft pressing separated the skins and seeds from the must before alcoholic fermentation and second fermentation in a pressure and temperature controlled autoclave. After filtration and centrifugation, the wine was refrigerated and bottled under pressure.
Light straw yellow with fine bubbles. A pleasant bouquet with notes of pear and floral hints is followed by a very bright, clean and lifted, palate.
Very dry, with lingering freshness.

A continuation of the fabulous run of Brokenback vintages since 2006. The 2009 vintage shows aromas of red berry fruits with only a very subtle lift of French oak. These characters then flow seamlessly onto the palate, with plush, sweet fruit balanced by soft acid and tannin, resulting in a classic Hunter shiraz.
Fruit was harvested in early February and fermented in hand plunged open vats. The wine was then matured primarily in 'large' French oak casks for eighteen months respecting tradition and the fruit quality, with only 10% receiving small oak maturation.
A rich, classic wine of this nature is best served with rich,...
