About

The La Mistura is the second label of Beechworth Nebbiolo specialist growers, Karen Coats and Dr Prue Keith at Virago. It is crafted made by local winemaking icon Rick Kinzbrunner of Giaconda fame.

2013 proved a difficult year for the vineyard, however, where usually in these challenging seasons the Nebbiolo is blended away with Shiraz or Cabernet, this vintage looked excellent on its own by the time in went to bottle.

For a top value pure expression Beechworth Nebbiolo, this is a rare find. Lighter and more delicate in its style, or sure, but varietal and enticing to its very core.

What It Tastes Like

This shows a more feminine side of Nebbiolo. Light fragrence of raspberry/cherry and fennel. A sprinkling of dried flowers. It’s fine boned and streamlined through the palate, with a delicate web of tannin and crisp acidity providing a tidy frame for the fresh red fruit to do its thing. Tasty and remarkable value.
