2021 Great Southern Nebbiolo

2021 Great Southern Nebbiolo

Colour: Medium ruby

Nose: Fruit characters of cherry and raspberry are supported by aromas of rose petal and anise. Intensely aromatic, the wine also has savoury, leathery notes. 

PalateThis wine is classic Nebbiolo, with concentrated sour cherry and raspberry fruit characters. These fruit characters are balanced by tight, but lingering acidity, earthiness and typical Nebbiolo tannin structure.

Nebbiolo’s notoriously colour-light but tannin rich skins are a critical factor in making this wine. Fruit intensity, structure and balance are the result.

Food pairing: Perfect pair for a non-lean cut of meat or creamy cheeses. Slow braised ragu, Truffles with fresh pasta.

Cellaring: Will gain complexity for 15+ years.

Winemaker: Rob Diletti

Reviews:

Paul Edwards - The West Australian
An impressive first vintage of Nebbiolo – pronounced sarsaparilla, dried herbs and a hint of fruitcake. Neither heavy nor a lightweight but generous, with plenty of ripe texture and grip. Long punchy savoury, flavours, bramble fruit and bresaola with some gum lolly and spice. So much to like. 94/100
