Chosen for the vineyard being grown on alluvial silts, strewn with river pebbles. The wine spent 36 days on skins and was then pressed and matured for 22 months in used old French oak barriques before being bottled unfined. There's a juicy fruit ripeness alongside classic Nebbiolo floral lift and moreish tannins all in cahoots here. It's Australian Nebbiolo made to be consumed young or put down for a few years to mellow.
