About The Wine
A new wine into the Nick Spencer fold from 2019, a Light Dry Red to compliment the Gundagai Dry Red that has been a staple of Nick's range from the beginning.
This is predominantly Pinot Noir blended with Sangiovese and Shiraz from Gundagai. In the same way the Gundagai Dry Red pays homage to the great old regional blends of the 60's and 70's, this wine is a tip of the cap to the old Australian 'Burgundies' made by blending Shiraz and Pinot Noir by the great Maurice O'Shea.
The first release is a belter. It's just on the lighter side of medium bodied, juicy and refreshing through the palate with the savoury finish of Sangiovese to keep it from being overtly sweet.
It's not a wine made for ageing, it's made from smashing while it's young and fresh. Get into it.
About Nick Spencer Wines
Nick Spencer made a name for himself after a hugely successful decade-long stint as chief winemaker at Eden Road, before deciding in 2017 to take the plunge and start his very own label.
The Nick Spencer wines are, like Eden Road's, focused on the regions of the NSW High Country, in particular, Tumbarumba and Gundagai.
With Nick's access to some of the region's best fruit, his wines are all about balance, style and drinkability, with Nick's stamp of quality on top. Tiny volumes made and an exciting producer to watch out for!
