LA ZONA Barbera 2016

When we planted Barbera in the ground of our Upper King Valley vineyard in 1984, little did we know that the variety would become the foundation of Chrismont, and a first for King Valley. Today, we continue to develop our distinct style through meticulous grape growing and winemaking, spurred on by the Australian wine drinker’s love of Italian flavours.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
COLOUR: Crimson red with youthful purple hues. AROMA: Blackberries and plum, with a herbal, spicy oak background. PALATE: Fragrant dark berry in a medium bodied palate. Aromatic spice and dark chocolate complement the acidity, finishing with fine velvety tannins.
Winemaker Notes
“Grapes are crushed and fermented on skins for seven days before being drained into tanks to complete primary and malolactic fermentation. The new wine is then racked into new and older French oak barrels for 12 months maturation before being blended and prepared for bottling. The wine is released after an extra six to twelve months age in bottle.” Warren Proft, winemaker
Food Pairing Notes
At its best when paired with tomato based dishes like a pizza with classic Italian ingredients or a hearty meat ragu.
