2013 Margaret River Nebbiolo

$32.50

Background

The Nebbiolo grape is native to Italy and most famous for the great Barolo and Barberesco wines of the Piedmont region, where the vines grow in cold, high altitude conditions. We have always loved the great Piedmont wines so the decision to plant Nebbiolo at our Margaret River vineyard was easy.

The Europeans describe Nebbiolo as the Pinot Noir of Italy due to the low yields and pale colour of the wine. Our Margaret River adaption of the wine has been a similar experience, with our low altitude, cool, maritime conditions providing for low yielding vines with great intensity and flavour.

It is a beautifully tannic wine that benefits immensely from cellaring. The good news is that we have done the hard work for you. The year 2013 was the last Nebbiolo vintage that provided large enough yields for us to make a commercial release, and this ageing makes for a great, ready to drink wine that matches with a range of cuisines. We recommend decanting or giving the wine 1-2 hours to air after opening, to enjoy the full experience that our Nebbiolo has to offer.

Tasting Notes

A medium intensity magenta colour. The wine offers fresh strawberry aromas with that balances well with a finish of chalky tannins and hints of licorice.
