This landed finally.
Made from the only plantings of Rondinella & Corvina in Aust planted 1999. Planted in the Hilltops district about 2 hours from where I grew up.District more known for cherries,stone fruit & merino sheep.
The winemaker is Dr Brian Freeman who was the Professor of Wine Science at Charles Sturt Uni which has a big viticulture & wine making faculty,about an hour from where I grew up.
The drying part is done in a neighbours solar powered prune dehydrator! Gotta love it when a professor is at the wheel.
Tasting notes ,dried cherries,earthy mushroom notes,savoury ,complex.
I will see when I open it this w/e.
