About

Neil Prentice first planted Nebbiolo on his Gippsland vineyard back in 1992. It took twenty years for him to get the vintage to ripen the fruit properly. "Thanks global warming." says Neil. Now that's commitment. He makes this using traditional methods: extended skin contact, minimal oak influence - searching for the ethereal qualities that make Nebbiolo one of the most hallowed varieties in wine. The 2013 is breathtaking, a wine of charm, purity and precision. A labour of love fully realised after more than two decades. Sometimes wine is more than just a drink...

What it Tastes Like

An explosion of flowery aromas. Heady scents of rose petals, lavender, cherry blossom with vibrant red fruit peeking through the floral bouquet. Intoxicating stuff. The palate is long and finely taut. Acidity threaded through the eye of a needle, fine-grained tannins linger to let you say good bye gently and in your own time. Beautiful work here from Neil.
