Next Generation: Margan Barbera White Label 2011

Here is a feature wine from Andrew Margan, one of the Hunter Valley’s Next Gen winemakers that you can catch on their 2013 Caravan of Courage tour at a location near you:


Andrew and Lisa Margan offer wine lovers good reason to venture to Broke with their stunning food and cellar door. This is a wine made for food, as is the barbera wines from Northern Italy.

The nose is rich with caramel spice, cherry and some wild herbs.  Bright acid and juicy sweet fruit dance along the palate leaving a maraschino cherry and coconut oak finish in its wake.  As a classic Hunter, it is medium bodied with supple tannins.  Drink it now with some venison pot pie and miniature steamed veges but I would probably leave it in the cellar to rest a while to come together more.

Date: 28th April 2013   Price:  $40    Value:Drink:  Now  – 7+ years
