Sam Scott is a man with a firm plan. Market research was done in years of fine wine retail and being a rep. Then a spell working all over the world before returning to the Adelaide Hills to start a winery dedicated to his favourite varieties. Both conventional and those not so that he believes are the future for our tough climate. He releases experimental wines under the La Prova label. This gives Sam a chance to play with new varieties and sites and the customer benefits with great value drinks.
Doughy pears, pepper and a hint floral. The palate has a soft texture and clean acidity. This is a fine nod to the great wines of Soave. A wonderful wine for matching with any dish that is often troublesome.
Adelaide Hills – This is a big and varied region that basically stretches from the top of the McLaren Vale all the way to the bottom of the Barossa. This means there is a big scope for climatic conditions. In the central part where its altitude is quite high you can get some of the best sites in the world for Sparkling wine. In the slightly warmer parts of the centre, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme with Riesling, Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc worthy of honourable mentions.
Garganega – A wonderfully crazy variety that could only come from Italy. It grows in the small region of Soave in Veneto. Introspectively interesting rather than overt, its acidity and texture make it the worlds ultimate food matching variety.
