Story: Dolcetto from our stunning red gum studded Wirrega Vineyard in the Limestone Coast has found a perfect home, as it shows its true expression, producing wines with an approachable demeanour and a delightful balance of acidity. Dolcetto's allure lies in its ability to capture the essence of its terroir, offering a glimpse into the rich cultural heritage and winemaking prowess of the Piedmont region, while providing wine enthusiasts with a versatile and enjoyable drinking experience.

Vintage: The 2023 vintage was very cool and very even in temperature, so
we were able to harvest each variety in its perfect window of premium ripeness for the intended wine styles. This was the third cool year in a row and the fruit flavours across the board were exceptional.

Nose: The Dolcetto entices with aromas of plum, berry, sweet mint, and lavender, creating a fragrant bouquet.

Palate: On the palate, it reveals notes of cherry, plum and cinnamon, adding a warm and inviting touch to the wine's profile.

Pairing: Known to be a super-friendly food wine, this Dolcetto pairs wonderfully with pork and fennel meatballs atop pasta drenched in a tomato, basil sauce. The wine's versatility and approachable nature complement the hearty flavours of the dish, resulting in a delicious and satisfying culinary experience.
