Unsung Hero Barbera 2017

Unsung Hero is a side project for winemaker Andy Williams, and what an entry he has made with this debut wine! Such a beautifully presented Barbera, this will bowl over many who choose to stand in its way.

Pizzini Lana Nebbiolo Barbera 2017

The back label suggests having this with Italian or Asian food. I reckon grab a burger in one hand and a glass of this in the other.

This is tense and tightly wound early. Keep swirling and things settle beautifully. A good drink, no two ways about it.

Angullong Fossil Hill Barbera 2016

From the team at Angullong, “The Orange region has climatic similarities to Piedmont in Italy where the variety is widespread. We are really pleased with the quality we are seeing now that the vines are gaining some age.” A Barbera smashing the high hats and bringing the variety to life.
