Product Description

Nick Stock 93 Points.From the winemaker:This is the fifth release of our Nebbiolo - a blend of five different clones from vineyards in Gumeracha in the Adelaide Hills that are now certified organic. In the style of traditional Barolo makers, this wine had an extended maceration on skins – in this case for 77 days - and the decision to press was made purely on taste.
This extended time on skins gives the wine a very different tannin profile, winding them from the centre of the mouth through to the very back palate.
This 2009 Nebbiolo is a seductive, elegant and understated wine with generous perfumed aromas, concentrated black currant and black cherry flavours supported by earthy, savoury tones, great acids and a fine, medium-bodied palate.

SENSORIAL DESCRIPTION
Bouquet An extremely perfumed wine with varietal aromas of roses, cherries and hints of wet earth and leather.
Palate The palate is medium to light bodied and the tannins are flavoursome, lip smacking and long.
Cellaring / Serving The beauty of this wine is the fantastic acid structure, allowing an aging process of at least ten years. It is therefore best decanted a couple of hours before serving.
