2021 First Ridge Barbera
The First Ridge Barbera is grown at the highest part of the First Ridge vineyard in Mudgee, at just under 600 meters. In this part of the vineyard the top soils are shallow, with the shale rock and iron stone underneath influencing the production of intense, varietal low yielding fruit.
Bright spicy berry aromas lead to a palate of rich dark plum and spice, with supportive vanillin oak, backed by crisp acidity, and soft tannins. A hall mark of this variety.
