Winemaking: The fruit was destemmed, cooled to approx 15 degrees C and placed into fermentation tank with yeast added immediately. Juice/wine was controlled to a maximum of 29 Degrees C during ferment. Wine was not plunged for the first 36 hours. Then gentle plunging was done twice daily for 20 minutes. Prior to completion of the ferment, Malolactic ferment was begun. When the wine had fermented to dryness skin contact was maintained for a further 14 days. Tanks were closed off from the atmosphere. The wine was plunged only once during this period. Wine was pressed of skins and transfer to a stainless steel tank and allowed to settle for 36 hours before transfer to oak barrel. The wine was aged in 3-5 year old french oak barriques for 18 months.
History: The original home of the Nebbiolo is the relatively small, hilly and misty corner of Northwest Italy – known as the Piedmont. It is believed to be indigienous to this area. Nebbiolo takes its name from ‘Nebbia’ or fogs that fill the steep-sided valleys of the region. Nebbiolo is one of the first varieties to bud each spring, but has a long ripening season, and is generally the last to be harvested each year. Wines from Nebbiolo are often characterised by their ample amounts of acidity and tannins, and thus often benefit from several years ageing.
Food Pairing: Rich tomato based pasta dishes, prosciutto and strong flavoured cheese.
Cellaring: 10 years and beyond.
Awards: Silver Medal at the 2016 Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show
Silver Medal at the 2017 Geographe & WA Alternative Varieties Wine Show

Here is what Ray Jordan said in his review of the Nebbiolo in his 2017 West Australian Wine Guide :
“The palate has a beautiful medium-bodied dry savouriness with spices and light raspberry cherry characters. Dry finish is perfect for food.”
