Fruitcake, raisins, juby black fruits, cola and licorice aromas. Dry, full bodied with dry mouth puckering tannins. More structure driven than fruit on the palate which is what you expect from Aglianico. Nice representative of the grape variety
After Five Wine Co Aglianico 2018, Barossa Valley, SA
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
