The Nero is a fully oaked Pinot Noir having spent ten months in French oak barriques. We let it age in the bottle for an appropriate time before release. Brook Eden Nero is a broody, long finish wine with subtle fruit of the forest berry and deep plum notes. Enjoy with red meats, game, quail and spicy food.
Brook Eden vineyard in North East Tasmania is the culmination of a five year search for a vineyard site capable of producing truly exquisite, cool-climate still and sparkling wines. There are only a few such places in Australia. Established in 1988 on the banks of Pipers Brook in northeast Tasmania, Brook Eden is nestled in a picturesque valley of rolling green hills. The vineyards are sited along an ancient ridge of deep, gravelly, well-drained, volcanic soil, which runs down to Pipers Brook on one side of the ridge and a spring-fed, native wetland on the other. At 41º South, and the start of the famed roaring forties, Brook Eden is true, cool-climate viticulture. The crisp air of the Southern Ocean, acknowledged as the cleanest in the world, tempers the heat of summer days and provides cool nights. This Southern latitude produces extended sunshine hours per day in summer and our cool, sometimes wind-swept site dictates that our old, non-irrigated vines must struggle a little as they slowly ripen their fruit during a growing season which is one of the longest in Australia.
