2017 Richard Hamilton 'Panacea' Barbera

The succulent round palate has a medium to full body and has a lovely persistence that draws to a tight conclusion with the balanced, fine tannins and soft acidity. It shows elegance and restraint.


In Italy, Barbera is the third most planted red variety, its popularity being driven by is match with food throughout the country. Although the variety was introduced into Australia in the 1960's, it is only a small percentage (0.08%) of Australia's production, so remains relatively rare. This is Richard Hamilton's first release of this variety.

The name Panacea indicates a solution or remedy for difficulties. Time spent reflecting on a day's issues over a meal with a glass of our Barbera will invariably put things in perspective. We do advocate drinking in moderation.
