"For this follow-up to the cracking, amaro-scented inaugural release, Col McBryde has returned to one of the highest and coolest parts of the Adelaide Hills--the Ceravolo Vineyard at Ashton in the Piccadilly Valley. Planted in 2007, the vines here are rooted in sandy loam with schist above sandstone. The fruit was hand-picked, de-stemmed and gently crushed before a nine-day maceration in concrete tank. It was then pressed and racked into neutral barrique for eight months before bottling. Even though it's fresh and medium-bodied, this year's version is quite tangy, with cherry and anise notes and some funky spice. The finish is juicy and refreshing."
