About

For seven long years, Jason Brown looked at the Nebbiolo fruit on his Hilltops vineyard and watched it drop to the ground. The vintages weren't quite right, the vines too young. Such is the way with Nebbiolo, the path to the grail can oft times be a rocky one. In 2015 the planets aligned and he got the chance to make his first wine from this precious fruit. It's a distinctly Australian looking Nebb, though it comes with all the hallmarks of the variety - tannin, power and perfume. For $30, there are very few Nebbiolo's in Australia worth drinking, but this is definitely one of them.

What it Tastes Like

"Bright dark purple. An enticing and complex bouquet of cherries, violets, roses and licquorice. The palate has dark, chewy, long-lasting flavours; blackberry, cherries, tobacco and creamy strawberry notes. Mid weight with well placed, finely ground, chalky tannins. Good acid with a fine long finish." - Jason Brown (Winemaker)
