2017 Domenica Nebbiolo Rosé

Beechworth, VIC

Delicious Rosé made from the run off from the great Domenica Nebbiolo.


Delicate, complex, fine rose here. Very good feel. Very good wine.

About The Wine

A new wine into the Domenica fold this year. 

This Rosé is made from juice from the famous Domenica Nebbiolo. Fermented in barrel for texture, some solids came along for the ride to lend weight. This is a serious savoury Rosé with great backbone and drive.

There is precious little Nebbiolo fruit on the Domenica vineyard, and even less assigned to this wine, but it's a blinder.

If you're looking for a more serious, food-friendly style of Rosé, this is a great option.

About Domenica

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."

Critic Reviews

Hooked On Wine

"Palish salmon-pink colour; the bouqet is very savoury, spicy; barrel-fermentation shows and the palate is soft and intense, dry and clean on the finish. Delicious wine." - Huon Hooke

The Wine Front

"The notable Beechworth nebbiolo producer makes a rose from the free run, which is naturally fermented and matured in barrel – what a coup for us! And it is a belter… Pale salmon colour. Soft scents of strawberry, peaches, light spice. The palate is very delicate, pure-feeling, strawberry kissed, zesty with green apple acidity, finishing with light nutty savouriness and a lick of talc-like mineral charm. Delicate, complex, fine rose here. Very good feel. Very good wine." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
