Rouleur 'Ronda' Nero D'Avola
Free shipping over 750 HKD
Of all the 'alternatives' making their mark on the Australian wine scene, Nero D'Avola (Nero, mate) is making a pretty strong claim as the leader of the pack. It is thriving in McLaren Vale. Layers of red fruits, cherry cola and umami-like spice. Matt tells us this vintage has a touch more weight and juiciness than prior years. The palate is typically intense, with lovely ripe cranberry fruit, sour cherry tang, elegant tannin and saline minerals to finish. Lovely, lovely drinking. The sort of wine that you really really look forward to having the next sip / glass / bottle. Alternatively good.
Calling all you high rollers. Allow us to introduce one man band Matt East. He grew up in the Yarra Valley, tinkering with his own wine from a young age, dad growing grapes in the back yard. The Rouleur philosophy is tending to pick on the earlier side for a freshness that knocks your socks off without sacrificing flavour. Matt’s rolling/rouleur journey in wine took him from national sales manager for Wirra Wirra to now getting his handy dirty, (cue suit in the bin. Sales script ripped apart. KPIs and spreadsheets deleted.). Rouleur is a tilt of the hat to his dad - lost but not forgotten - and a nod to the road less traveled.
