The Barbera grape is one of the most common varieties in the Piedmont region of Italy. It has been grown in Australia for many years and we are one of 4 producers in the Broke Fordwich Wine Region. It ripens late, has a high level of natural acidity and produces a full-bodied wine with deep ruby colour.
Our Winifred Barbera, named after Wendy’s Mother, is a most pleasing addition to our range.
The wine has smoky and earthy undertones of sour cherry on the nose and a mild oak influence is revealed. The palate shows substantial fruit weight distinctive to this unique varietal and overall the wine has good body and healthy tannins with a powerful lingering finish.
Since 2006 our Barbera has been aged for 2 years in oak Barrels stored in optimum conditions at Hunter Wine Services at Muswellbrook.
