About The Wine
A brilliant example of the rising quality of Australian Rosé here from the hands of 2016 Jimmy Watson Trophy Winner, Julian Langworthy.
The Nocturne Nebbiolo Rosé was made from a single vineyard in Margaret River. The fruit was hand picked specifically for Rosé, then whole bunch pressed to barrel for 10 weeks before being settled and bottled.
Julian is going for a more architectural style of Rosé with this wine.
Something inspired by the pink wines of Bandol that can develop with time in bottle.
Nocturne is the personal side label of highly decorated Margaret River winemaker Julian Langworthy and his wife Alana.
Julian has won just about everything there is to win in Australian wine, having taken out Winemaker of the Year for the 2019 Halliday Wine Companion, the 2016 Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy at Royal Melbourne in the space of just a couple of years.
The Nocturne wines are all small production with Julian focusing on quality rather than quantity in this range.
The fruit is procured through Julian's connections with local growers developed over his lifetime in the Margaret River region. If you're looking for hidden gems of Margaret River, the Nocturne wines are it.
