Eldorado Road 'Comrade' Nero D'Avola 2016
Limited to 6 bottles per customer.
Australian Wine Review: Eldorado Road is a winery you should be watching. Good people, making great wines from a vineyard halfway between Beechworth and Wangaratta at Eldorado. This ’16 Nero is made from 6 different ferments, some whole bunch, some whole berry, some early and late picked plus different time on skins, all matured for 18 months in old oak. Bright purple coloured, it’s all blackberry fruit through the middle and then that classic tarry Nero finish. There is genuinely lots going on in this full bodied red though, the tannins start picking up late in the piece and then gets finer and grippier. What a delight. A wine of punchy power and weight, but enough restraint too. A template for how to deliver rich but refined Aussie Nero and I could easily drink plenty of this. Best drinking: Good now, better in two years and will no doubt live for a decade plus.
