Nebbiolo is one of Italy's finest grape varieties, often compared to Pinot Noir for its finicky nature in the vineyard and haunting fragrance in the glass. The fruit for this wine was grown by one of our family growers in the Hilltops region of New South Wales. The vineyard is situated on a rolling hillside near Young at an altitude of 500m and has rich red volcanic soils. This vineyard has warmer days to ripen our Nebbiolo and cool nights to ensure our fruit is grown with the richness, aromatic development and balance that this region is renowned for.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Notes From The Winemaker: A drier than normal winter in 2016 meant budburst happened 2 weeks earlier than usual. Normally this would put us at slight risk to frost but some spring rainfall helped the frost stay away and ensured healthy growth in the vines. While it was a dry growing season, maximum temperatures were still moderate and the harvest dates for all varieties ended up falling back to the their expected times, not earlier as experienced in other grape-growing regions. The Hilltops region is blessed with mostly drier and warmer days with some cooling relief at night due to its continental position. The Nebbiolo was harvested on 29th March at 13.5 baume from a 20yo single vineyard, this wine was open-fermented with cultured yeast, 28 days on skins, matured in French Oak (10% new) for 9 months.
Fruit Source: 100 % Hilltops Region
