Fox Gordon The Black Prince Nero d’Avola 2016, Adelaide Hills, AUD $25

Nero d’Avola is a captivating variety an alluring perfume, generous flavour and refined tannins. Fox Gordon make a fine example with characteristic orange peel perfume along with red and dark fruits. And the longer the wine is open, the more interesting the aroma becomes. The palate, which is filled with mulberry and chocolate tones, is medium-bodied though highly flavoursome and the tannins are fine and measured. A youthful wine with great expression. I expect it will age nicely in the short term. (Screwcap)
