About

Aussie Nebbiolo has come a long way in the past few years. Getting better all the time. The landscape of styles and expressions of this grape from our country is broadening. Onwards and upwards! After Adam Louder's first attempt at this notoriously difficult grape, he admits he was a little at sea but as Mike Bennie so eloquently put it, "It’s a lighter shade of Nebbiolo that’s emerged.". Louder says, _ "I had no idea what I was doing when I came at this. After three days in an open fermenter the skins looked like shit, so I stopped plunging and let it do its own thing." Currently, top value sub-$30 Nebbiolo is hard to come by but we have a beauty here. Built for the Neb novice and the aficionado alike, this is the friendly side of Neb that you don't often see.

What it Tastes Like

"Good scents of almonds and walnut husks, red fruits, briar. Light, fresh, engaging perfume. It’s light and juicy to taste, savoury as all get out, touched up with cranberry like acidity and amaro sour-sweetness. Shows the variety very well, albeit in a lighter framework, and feels ultra refreshing to drink. Very fine, long, sandy tannins drag flavours long. Great expression." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
