Koerner 'Nielluccio', Clare Valley, Australia 2016

24.95

A fabulous expression of the Nielluccio grape (Corsica’s version of Sangiovese) from the cool Clare Valley in Australia. The aromas are an enticing combination of angelic alto notes and devilish deep notes and on the palate there’s an insouciant richness, a sense that the flavours have been coaxed not bludgeoned, beginning with succulent black cherries and tamarind notes, enlivened by a squeeze of orange juice for acidity, but wait a second or two for the whoosh of ‘whole bunch’ sweetness that carries through from the front to the back palate, like a conga line of strawberries, kola nut, apricot fuzz, purple flowers and middle-eastern spices. This is an all-nighter, a party on your palate. Tell your folks you won’t be home til dawn. 12.9% alc. 20% whole bunch. Wild yeast fermentation. 10 months in ceramic ‘eggs’. Unfined, unfiltered. Hipster credentials: 10/10. Drink now-2022
