About

Nathan Reeves and David Chatfield have hardly put a foot wrong with their Out of Step wines and this 2015 Nebbiolo is another home run for the Yarra-based duo. Their philosophy revolves around sourcing fruit from some of Victoria's most prized vineyards, and when it comes to Nebbiolo, the _Malakoff vineyard_ in the Pyrenees is as prized as it gets. It has great approachability as far as Nebb goes - it's not overly astringent, but full of beautifully concentrated fruit without losing any varietal character. Campbell Mattinson described this as "a rip-roaring nebbiolo... getting into ‘wow’ territory"._ It is without doubt the best release of this wine to date. Just 215 dozen produced, and simply a must buy for Nebbiolo lovers.

What it Tastes Like

"It casts a spell. Last year’s release was excellent; this is better again. The perfume, the character, the spread, the command. Tobacco, leather, dark chocolate, orange rind, roasted nuts and asphalt. Licorice. It’s got it all going on. But it’s not just the flavours themselves. It’s the drama of it. Some warmth perhaps but the power through the finish, the feeling that you can’t look away: this is getting into ‘wow’ territory." - Campbell Mattinson
