Here’s a winemaker who understands Nebbiolo.
About The Wine
Peter Graham's Nebbiolo is a labour of love. He crafts it in a traditional way.
The fruit is gently handled from picking to the long, slow ferment. The two large format oak casks, his pride and joy, are filled by gravity. The juice is left to sleep for a few years prior to release. This is Nebbiolo with power and concentration.
The 2015 is a powerhouse release. This is set to be one of the benchmark Nebbiolo releases in Australia this year with a huge 95 points from Gary Walsh at The Wine Front. For enthusiasts of variety, this wine is selling fast.
Do yourself a favour and get some in the cellar while you still can.
Peter Graham is one of Beechworth's most thoughtful and talented winemakers. From his small plot of land on the Beechworth "Golden Mile", Pete crafts articulate and powerful wines with a gentle hand.
He farms his vineyard organically, though uncertified, with great care. The quality of fruit it yields is first class. In the winery, everything is moved via gravity. Patience is a virtue that Pete definitely possesses. No wine is released until it's 'ready'.
The Nebbiolo is one of the country's benchmarks. The Chardonnay is always in high demand given Pete's history as assistant winemaker at Giaconda. The Shiraz is the very model of modern Australian Shiraz; a wine with both power and refinement.
As Mike Bennie once noted:"If you’re into the new wave of truefine wine producers of Australia you should be onto, should get onto, Domenica. Classics in the making. Rising high."
