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.
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.
