About

Nic Peterkin has shown in his young career that he is not afraid to take risks and give anything a go. Some Nebbiolo fruit became available from a cool site at the Southern End of Margaret River in 2015. He jumped in feet first. "There are things I love about Nebbiolo," he told us, "And things I don't. I want the tannins not to be harsh and I want plenty of fruit. It should be drinkable from a young age, and I think that's what the 2015 is like." Three of the five barrels that he made contained fruit on skins for a massive 400 days. A logistical nightmare according to Nic but the results were worth it. It's a beautiful wine. Something uniquely Australian but also staying true to the hallmarks of the variety. There is no 2016 or 2017 vintage. There were only 1000 bottles made in 2015 and it's almost sold out. Do not hesitate if you are a Nebbiolo fan.

What it Tastes Like

Rosy perfume, cherries baking on bitumen, rust and earth and tobacco all set amongst the smells of the Aussie bush. It's so very Nebbiolo but with Margaret River strung throughout its DNA. It corkscrews through the mouth. Sour red cherries rush with a maelstrom of acidity and tannin. The tannins are soft but present. It’s varietal. It’s Australian and it doesn’t shy away from that. It’s a fascinating wine from beginning to end.
