Nebbiolo, the Barolo grape, takes its name from the Italian for fog (nebbia), which sheds a little light on the name of this wine. It's a fantastic exploration of one of Italy's most noble grape varieties given a spin in the Southern Hemisphere by a really talented bunch of guys who care more about the content than the style and the style is superb!

Gorgeous! Proper Barolo colour, pale with a hint of brick, but that belies the rich and opulent aromas, woody and floral too, with jewel bright fruit that amplifies in the mouth. The tannins are ripe and sweet and not as drying as they can be in Barolo, giving an impression of wood saturated in red cherry juice. They build in the mouth, creating the architecture of the wine, accompanied by impressions of sweet plum, dried orange peel, cedar and dark chocolate nibs. A very exciting wine! 14% alc. Estate-grown vines. 18 months in oak. Drink now-2022

The Wine Detective: "A brooding, savoury, long and interesting Nebbiolo, with dark berry fruit, orange peel spice and a fine mist of sustaining tannins which builds on the finish, but doesn’t cloak the wine."
