Country of Origin: Australia
Type: Red Wine
Grape Variety: Other Red Varieties
An avant-garde red wine that some would say should be excommunicated for heresy, Samuel Smith’s 2019 Negroamaro is unsettling with its perfumed ruggedness and its intensely refreshing acidity. This is for the brave and daring who are willing to challenge their preconceived notions of how wine should taste.
A labor of love that costs as much as it makes, Sam's BEAST project strips Sam’s winemaking to its essence, making it more accessible to spark inspiration, conversation, and camaraderie among rebels, artists, and dreamers.
