Hailing from the hallowed area of North East Italy, Nebbiolo is responsible for the some of Italy’s most expensive and well known wines. Nebbiolo is a unique wine that reflects the site on which it was grown and Heathcote with its rich volcanic red soils and warm dry climate produce a unique richly perfumed Nebbiolo wine.
The 2014 release is a from the Willoughby Bridge vineyard situtatied on the Cambrian iron rich soils of Heathcote. Handpicked and sorted the 2014 vintage came in as some of the best fruit we’ve worked with. Ensuring a coolerm natural ferment open top fermenters and gently plunged up to 55 days post ferment has resulted in better and finer tannins. Aged for 14 months in 5 year+ French barriques. Will cellar for up to 10 years but drinking well upon release, we highly recommend decanting, Nebbiolo loves a bit of air.
