About The Wine

Julian Langworthy is known in certain circles as the 'King of Pink'.

The man crafts an ungodly amount of top shelf Rosé in his day job as chief winemaker at Deep Woods. For his Nocturne label, he's looking for a slightly more savoury and stuctural style of pink.

This combines Sangiovese and Nebbiolo picked specifically for Rosé into a vibrant, textural, highly-gluggable wine style that is ready to slake your thirst this Summer.

The advantage of making Rosé from these Italian varieties is that they come with plenty of tannin and crisp acidity, by using some lees time and a little barrel work, Julian and Alana can pack some flesh on those bones. Dry, savoury, and wondefully fragrant, this will be a favourite this Summer.

About Nocturne

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.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The fruit comes from the sub-region of Carbanup in Margaret River, with the sites being relatively flat and warm with fertile, red sandy soils. The grapes were harvested between 16th and 28th April. The Sangiovese fruit was simply destemmed, chilled and pressed using only the free-run fraction of the juice. It was then fermented at moderate temperatures using as always solely indigenous yeasts. After fermentation it was matured for three months on gross lees to add additional texture.

The Nebbiolo fruit was hand-picked and, after chilling, whole bunch-pressed directly to old oak for fermentation. This took close to six weeks, after which the wine received a further four weeks’ maturation in barrel. At this stage the final blend between Sangiovese and Nebbiolo was decided and the wine was emptied from barrel/tank, settled, filtered, sulphured and bottled on 3rd August.

Blend : Sangiovese (60%), Nebbiolo (40%)
ABV : 13%
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2022
Bottle Size : 750ml

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine.
