Brown Brothers Dolcetto & Syrah
Dolcetto is an Italian grape variety that is little known or planted in Australia. The variety hails from the mountainous Piedmont region of north-west Italy. Translated literally, “Dolcetto” means “little sweet one”, although the Italians generally make dry red wines from the variety. Brown Brothers, attracted by its vibrant red colour and attractive flavours of ripe summer berries, has opted to produce a distinctive fruit-driven wine. The other grape variety in this blend is Syrah or Shiraz as it is known in Australia. One of the oldest known grape varieties, Shiraz is responsible for many of the Rhone Valley’s best known and highly acclaimed red wines. It has also made itself very much at home within the wide range of soils and climates of Australia’s diverse viticultural regions.
