About

Australian Nebbiolo is on the rise. Here in the hands of winemaker Alex Byrne, this Heathcote fruit is singing. Stylistically, this is made to be an approachable yet typically varietal example of Nebbiolo. Alex cold soaks the fruit for 10 days during ferment and lets it hang out on skins for a further 12 days post to extract his desired amount of tannin and colour. It's a bright, easy-to-love Australian version of this revered variety. Fruit forward but with classic Nebbiolo structure. If you want to get your head around this variety, this rock 'n' roll version is a great place to start.

What it Tastes Like

Typical perfume of roses and bitumen. Faint lift of fennel seeds and some almost sage-like characters. The fruit is the star of the show here. Cherry. Raspberry. Firm grape tannins. Great Neb 101 example.
