This is TarraWarra's first Barbera release. It comes as a result of an under performing Pinot vineyard planted in 1989, K Block, where 50% was grafted over to the now highly consistent K Block Merlot in 2006. 25% of the remaining vineyard was grafted over to Nebbiolo in 2012 and the other 25% to this Barbera.
A good first up release with plenty of potential for future releases, that's for sure. It carries varietal presence although I felt it sits a little lean mid-palate. Bright and crunchy acidity stands tall and continued to hold its head high on the second day of tasting.
