About The Wine
The Tonic wines are always in hot demand. Given the quality, the scarcity and the individuality of the whole package, it's no wonder.
Their fourtn release of Nebbiolo is a stunner. The Bowe-Lees vineyard in the Adelaide Hills is one of the country's premiere sources for this much-loved variety, Glenn was lucky enough to get their hands on a tiny parcel once again in 2018. Sadly, from 2020, there will be no more fruit from this vineyard as it was burnt to the ground in the tragic bushfire events of early 2020.
This Nebbiolo spent 89 days on skins, before being aged in old oak and sent to bottle without fining or filtering.
It's Nebbiolo with no strings attached, just pure thirst-slaking exuberance oozing from every crevice. With only 95 dozen in existence, the Tonic Nebbiolo will not last long.
About Tonic Wines
Tonic Wines has only been around for a short time but the wines have caused quite a stir.
These are small batch, handmade, minimalist South Australian wines with an aim to source high-quality parcels of fruit, picked early to capture freshness and vitality.
Tonic declares "We don’t really believe in boring wine", and with the remarkable Rosé, Chardonnay, Grenache, Mataro and Nebbiolo released thus far, there are no signs of boring here.
These wines are produced in painfully small amounts, sometimes as little as 50 dozen per wine. If you are curious about this winery with mystique, you'll have to act quickly to try their delicious wares.
