About The Wine

This is a light-bodied red made for drinking while in the flush of its youth.

Nebbiolo, while having a reputation for being a powerhouse, can make these softer, early-drinking reds when handled gently. Especially when it's paired up with the bright and jubey Refosco grape - it's a match made in heaven here from Pat Underwood.

It's a pitch-perfect red for warmer weather, filled with sweet strawberry and cherry notes and a lovely floral top note. It's a little nervy and has a lot of energy. It's fantastic to drink.

About Little Reddie

Pat Underwood is the mind, hands and palate behind the charming wines of Little Reddie.

Pat takes fruits from across multiple well-farmed sites across Central Victoria. These are, by and large, vineyards and regions that fly under the radar. Well, Pat is making more and more people sit up and take notice.

He makes everything from classic, straight-down-the-line Shiraz and Chardonnay to more esoteric blends and naturally made experimental wines. These are joyful, friendly, charismatic wines from a young guy who shares those same characteristics.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Colbinabbin in its youth — yum yum! Drink something local and light and delicious that's not going to burn a hole in your pocket. This is Nebbiolo and Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso from the Willoughby Bridge and Chalmers vineyards respectively. These sites sit either side of Heathcote-Rochester Rd just north of the town of Colbinabbin. Chalmers’ vines are higher up on the hill with more intense red soils, whereas the Willoughby Bridge vineyard runs further down towards the plains. Most of the Nebbiolo comes from Blocks A and C which are more recent graftings, on more intensely iron-rich soils.

The pressings from an early Nebbiolo pick — full of phenolics and flavour — were fermented in barrique while de-stemmed Nebbiolo and Refosco were fermented individually in stainless. Each pick brings different elements to the assemblage to make a wine of place. The wine spent a couple of months coming together in stainless steel prior to bottle.

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. The good news is we may be able to order more for you.
