Nero d'Avola is Sicily's primary grape variety. Likes warm climates making it well suited to Australia.

Chalmers was the first Australian producer to plant the variety at Heathcote, and it's still one of the country's better examples.

It's light-to-medium bodied, bright, fragrant and savoury, with an old world nose of wood, blueberries and 'forest floor' with lively dark fruits its distinctly spicy,
with fresh acidity and chewy tannins making this a food wine.

Yes I say food wine because it works incredibly well with a range of red and white meat dishes, pasta with tomato base even a very good hamburger (Not Mackers)
but I myself can drink this wine with glee with nothing more than tasty cheese and salty crackers and cured meats.

I think this is a good place to start tasting Nero d'Avola there are a few other good Australian examples out there and I will get to talk about them later.


I love my food and wine
