2017 Momento Mori True Love Waits
Exciting to have this in the shop - a straight Nero D’Avola - lovely notes from Dane..: This wine is always a special release for me. The fruit comes from the very closely guarded top corner of the Chalmers Mt Camel vineyard and is a part of the very first vines planted there. Grown organically in an ultra-rocky mix of Ironstone, Dolerite, Green Basalt & Jasper. I consider myself very fortunate to be given access to a small amount of this pristine fruit each year as the rest of it is always kept for their own wines. The wine drinks more like Cru Beaujolais than your typical Nero and has a lot of mineral depth. It is very well structured whilst still being light and energetic. The nose is incredibly perfumed with loads of blue/black fruit and stony minerality. The tension and energy are glass-like and it has a super vibrant acidity to the whole thing.
