Bella Luna Nero d’Avola 2020
Our beautiful Nero d’Avola is best enjoyed on a moonlit terrace overlooking the Riviera with a group of stylish friends. Or just crack it open in your backyard with a couple of mates. You will be singing like a soprano before you know it.

Viticulturist Notes
Fruit for the Bella Luna Nero d’Avola was harvested from our vineyards in Victoria. The must was fermented in static red fermenters and pumped over every eight hours for the ferment’s duration. Once the ferment was dry, the resulting wine was pressed off the skins and allowed to settle before allowing a natural secondary fermentation to commence. Separate parcels of the wine were aged on French oak staves for 8 months, after which the final blending of select parcels took place. The resulting wine is ripe, savoury and beautifully herbaceous.
Wine Harvest Notes
I have been making wine with McPherson Wines for 15 years now, and just when you think you have it sorted, bam another challenge comes your way. Vintage 2020 in itself was manageable and promising, yields were low therefore overall tonnages down. Given yields were low, quality is great - the intensity of both colour and flavour in the reds and whites is excellent - there will certainly be some cracking reds from 2020. We were almost through the harvest when the COVID restrictions hit - which provided another level of complexity. However it all worked out in the end, it usually does, and I hope that everyone enjoys our 2020 wines.
Food Recommendations
The Nero d’Avola is a lighter style of red and matches beautifully with red meats, and is crying out to be enjoyed alongside an antipasto platter or some pasta. This wine is our favourite addition to any Summer BBQ – our time to laugh and sing with friends!
