I first me Schioppettino in 2015 and was immediately intrigued. I'd never worked with the variety before, not many people in Australia have, so I wasn't sure quite what to expect. I've discovered it's a very peppery variety with long, fine tannins, although this 2016 version does not exhibit much pepper due to the very hot weather during the growing season. This only the second crop from these vines at the Greenacre Vineyard in Merriang South but I think the variety has a lot of potential and can't wait to see it with a bit of vine age. Only 40 dozen made.
