The inaugural release of our Single Vineyard Nebbiolo.

Our Nebbiolo block is a new section of vineyard established in 2017, and has been organic from the ground up.  It was officially certified organic in September 2021 and from the 2022 vintage this will be reflected on the label.  Picked in mid-April, it was harvested 7 weeks after the shiraz.  This extended ripening well into autumn means the wine has ample time for flavour and tannin ripeness, without the stress of the at-times extreme heat of a Heathcote summer.

After the long dry spell through 2019-2020, the 2021 season thankfully started with a nice wet winter, replenishing the water supply and the ground water.  Spring was mild and uneventful, and the summer was another relatively mild one, without any serious heat spikes.  

Winemaker: Tom Carson

Winemaker Notes
The fruit was hand picked, hand sorted and carefully de-stemmed. the whole berries were then transferred to oak fermenation vats for natural fermantation. Once fermentation was complete, the wines were transferred to older french oak 500L barrels for maturation. The wine was left undisturbed until bottling in late February 2022.
Tasting Notes
Mid crimson red in colour. The aromas are pure Nebbiolo - uncluttered and clearly identifiable. Pure red fruits, rose petals, cranberry, pomegranate, Campari and lick of wet stone. The palate is super fine and detailed, firm tannins, pure red fruits and a fine acid line create a compelling wine. It's bright and clean and flows effortlessly across the palate, finishing long and savoury. This wine will age well in the cellar for many years to come.
