2016 Freddy Nerks Red (Natural Wine)
Dolcetto, Pinot Noir
Adelaide Hill, Australia
The Freddy Nerks Roso drinks more like a southern Italian wine,
light and fresh with great balance and zip. In other words, this isn't a body builder wine,
it's not trying to impress you with weight and power, this wine just wants to be friends. 
From the first sip you’ll be smiling as the lip smacking cherry flavours dance around your mouth. 
You do not need a plate of food to enjoy this beauty
but if you happen to have a roasted chicken or a plate of charcuterie,
 all the better.
