About

Steve Pannell’s love for Nebbiolo runs deep. It lead him on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land of Nebbiolo, the famed hills of Barolo in Italy. He came back to Australia with a vision to craft Neb to challenge the best in the world and he is making a great fist of it.

Weather conditions out of his control have meant that he has been able to release only three vintages in the last seven years but when he has, each release has been more remarkable than the last. By sourcing the fruit for this wine from the cooler Adelaide Hills region Pannell has sculpted a beautifully perfumed, structured and rustic wine that is more akin to the similarly styled ‘Nebbs’ of Italy.

This is the variety that Steve drinks most of at home and his enthusiasm for it leaks through into every drop of this wonderful release from 2013. Like all great Nebbiolo it’s brilliant with food, and with its epic structure, it will continue to age gracefully from “now until Armageddon”.

This is widely regarded as one of Australia’s premier Nebbiolos, and if you love Italian wines then this is an essential addition to your collection.

What It Tastes Like

This is classic Nebbiolo bursting with decaying roses, bitumen, star anise and the smells of a bowlful of fresh cherries at christmas. Deep pools of red fruit fill the mouth. The architecture is so precise, so detailed; tannin and acid acting as the scaffolding on which he hangs cherry and raspberry and cranberry. Just a beautiful wine.
