Siren, Nero D'Avola

History

Siren is the most elusive and seductive of our wines. Grown in the closest region to the ocean, the wine has a salt-kissed palate melded with beautiful cherry aromas and kept fresh by acidity. Nero d'Avola translates into "black of Avola", Avola being a town on the south east coast of Sicily, so it's a variety that's been forged in the most Mediterranean of climates. Due to Nero d'Avola’s natural acidity, we showcase a lighter side to this variety, choosing employ all the techniques of Pinot Noir production.
