03Classic Hilltops Corvina 2018
Corvina is currently a lesser known varietal in Australia, originating from the Veneto region of Italy.
It is late ripening and grown in the Hilltops region of NSW near Young, where the climate is not dissimilar to it’s Italian home.
This 2018 example exhibits garden flower aromas with Morello cherry fruit and a long savoury palate, characteristic of this grape.
Corvina wines pair well with a number of Italian dishes, particularly those that contain pasta and tomato based sauces.
Despite being a red wine, it often pairs well with seafood dishes due to its light acidity, unusual given the general rule of thumb that red wine pairs with red meats, and white with fish, seafood and poultry.
