Brand Info After starting up Pertaringa in McLaren Vale and K1 in the Adelaide Hills, Geoff established Hand Crafted by Geoff Hardy in 2004. Always a passionate and innovative viticulturist, Geoff's Hand Crafted brand offers one of the broadest and most exciting ranges of alternative and emerging varieties in Australia.

Story Nero d’Avola is the most widely planted red grape variety in Sicily and takes its name from the Avola region on the south-eastern part of the island. The variety likes hot and dry climates, making it perfect for McLaren Vale.

Vintage The 2018 growing season started slowly, but warmer weather eventually helped to speed things up. Fruit set throughout the region was good and the low rainfall and warm weather from January to April resulted in great sugar development, while a cooler than average March offered ideal night temperatures for colour and flavour development.

Nose The nose is beautifully vibrant with floral notes, raspberries and plums.

Palate The palate is youthful and fresh with notes of raspberries, plums and spice, complemented by lovely acidity.

Food Pairings Serve with gnocchi with pumpkin, ricotta, pine nuts and burnt sage butter.
