About the Wine

Aussie Nebbiolo has come a long way in the past few years, and this is one of the best value examples around.

This comes from the excellent Malakoff Vineyard in the Pyrenees - a site known for quality Nebbiolo - and the extremely capable winemaking talents of Adam Louder.  It's made very simply - picked at the right time, 28 days on skins and then into older oak.  It's bottled unfined and unfiltered - it's a simple but very effective formula.

With impressive reviews from James Halliday and Mike Bennie, this is one of the best value Nebbs around.  Just 100 dozen made and the ultimate introduction to what makes Nebbiolo so adored.

About SubRosa

Adam Louder's career has been a long and prestigious one even though he is only in his mid-30s. With more than 30 vintages under his belt, he has worked with some true masters during his time at the press. From the early days under Trevor Mast at Mount Langhi Ghiran to Araujo Estate owned by Chateau Latour in the Napa Valley, to Chateau Carsin in Bordeaux and Pierro and Xanadu in Margaret River, the man has worked in world-class wineries his entire career.

Now, alongside his wife Nancy Panter, his own label SubRosa is breaking through with a characterful range of charming wines from Victoria.  Working with a number of excellent vineyards in Grampians and the Pyrenees, SubRosa's specialty is Shiraz, with some more than impressive Nebbiolo, Chardonnay and Viognier playing second fiddle.

The wines are made in a very hands-off fashion and in tiny quantities - this is an exciting project which should have a close eye kept on it.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Coming to the end of a day's tasting, nebbiolo tannins and fill the mouth like fast-drying cement.  But this is a high-quality wine by any standards, complete with violets on the bouquet, sumptuous dark fruits and millimetre perfect tannins." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"Rich scents of ash, dark cherry, game meat, leather straps, anise. Evocative, dense fog of savouriness and fruit. Medium weight, light concentration, savoury flavours, more of the game meat, medicinal cherry fruitiness, fine ropes of suede tannin, finishes with a burst of fresh-feeling acidity and some nice bitterness. Glorious drinking." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
