About The Wine
David Chatfield has hardly put a foot wrong with his Out of Step wines and this 2016 Nebbiolo is another home run for the Yarra-based up-and-comer.
His 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 vintage as "a very good wine." Great value to be had here for the Nebb-heads out there.
About Out Of Step
Dave Chatfield is the man behind the Out Of Step project.
After working vineyards in the Yarra Valley for years, Dave decided it was time to start his own thing.
The philosophy behind his wines: “To be great it must be real, expressive & honest.”
The wines are made with very little tinkering in the winery, allowing the great vineyards he sources fruit from to shine.
Based in the Yarra Valley, but sourcing fruit from various parts of Victoria, Out Of Step is forging a reputation for serious, eye-catching wines at a great price.
