About The Wine

This is the first Nebbiolo from Caroline Mooney and what a beauty it is.

The fruit comes from a vineyard in Dixons Creek, Yarra Valley. Caroline watched this closely in the fermenter, pumping over and plunging down the berries, looking for a more savoury style of Nebbiolo than the bright and juicy wine mould that many Australian Nebbiolos are made in.

This has power and beauty.

Campbell Mattinson called wrote this wine, "This really puts itself on the map."

A very good, very serious expression of Australian Nebbiolo that many traditionalists will love.

The Wine Front

"Intoxicating perfume. A crush off roses, spices and dry tobacco. Talk about put you in the mood. Red licorice, red cherry, star anise and spice notes crackle through the palate, aided by dry, savoury tannin. This is a beautiful red wine. Part sweet, part savoury, dry mostly but juicy too. This really puts itself on the map. " - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
