A Red in the Rain

By Fergal Gleeson

Nebbiolo is the grape inside one of the world’s greatest wines- Barolo. ‘The king of wines and the wine of kings’ as the Italians modestly call it! Vineyard 28 make a number of interesting wines from grapes originating in Piedmont in Northern Italy including Armies (white) , Barbera (red) and a delicious medium bodied Nebbiolo ($28) capturing it’s savoury charm. www.vineyard28.com.

Barrecas Wines are Fil and Kelly Barreca. Fil was inspired to become a winemaker after a visit to his family’s homeland in Sicily. Barrecas make a powerful Nebbiolo ($32) with intense cherry flavours and bright acid. They also make a full bodied Zinfandel and Barbera. Hearty welcome at the cellar door guaranteed! www.barrecas.com.au

If you want to keep that Italian vibe going try Harvey River Estate’s inaugural release of Barbera ($30). This wine picked up a Gold Medal and slew of other awards at the Geographe Wine show. Dry, quite delicately structured with a smooth tannin profile over ripe cherry fruits. www.harveyriverestate.com.au
