2007 david hook hunter valley - Barbera

Country of origin: Argentina
Area/Appellation: Hunter
Variety/Style: Barbera
Cellaring: Now-2012
Supplier Agent: David Hook Wines
Availability: Readily
Price Range: $25.00

Tasting Note:
Barbera can often underperform and produce hard lean wines, but with enough warmth and ripeness it combines rich, dark fruit flavours with good natural acidity. The Huner may seem an odd place for a grape that hails from the cool,misty climes of Piemonte in north-western Italy. But David Hook has been drawing the best from barbera for years now, and the 2007 continues that success. This is ripe, intensely dark-fruited with a juicy, fleshy palate with fine balancing acid. It's probably best with the balance of fresh fruit and acid but a few years cellaring will not go astray.
