Breaking barbera

Margan Breaking Ground Barbera 2017, Hunter Valley, AUD $40

This wine is very youthful but bursting with authentic raspberry-like varietal aromas, laced with hints of almond and cherry-like darker fruits. The wine is just medium-bodied, with sweet fruit in the middle and fine, emery-like tannins. It’s just starting to drink well and will repay a little cellaring. (screwcap)
