The Wine

Classically pale in the glass, Nebbiolo is a deceptive and beautiful wine. The nose is alluring with aromas of rose petal, violet, red fruit and star anise. The palate is juicy and complex with cherry, plum and liquorice combined with sturdy tannins and a bright finish.


Since 2003, we have developed new plantings of Nebbiolo with a clone called 220. We had noticed that our best fruit was coming from dry ridges, so our new plantings have been on premier ridge sites. The resulting wines have been richer in colour and concentration of flavour. The grapes for this wine were hand harvested then crushed and de-stemmed. Fermentation started immediately and the juice was inoculated with a yeast strain form Barolo (a region famous for producing Nebbiolo). Fermentation lasted for about five days before the wine was lightly pressed and then allowed to finish fermentation in oak barrels where polymerising helps to soften and round the tannins. Finally, the wine went through malolactic fermentation and was then aged in barrel for 20 months.
