Barbera is a grape variety that is famous in northern Italy. Catalyst Barbera is true to the style and shows a medium-bodied velvet fleshy palate with savory dark cherry aromas. It accompanies savoury dishes such as antipasto, veal, lamb and lasagna. It is excellent easy drinking now and will improve for a further five years or so.
Catalyst wines are crafted by Masters of Wine Andrew Corrigan and Peter Scudamore-Smith. The wines are Australian but show a sophisticated international style.
