Winemaker notes:
Slightly darker hue than previous years with a really natural cherry colour and flicks of terracotta. But only flicks.
Incredibly harmonious bouquet - red roses, fennel tops and freshly cut cherries. A little savoury spicy thing, cherry wood and cinnamon and a tiny little alpine lift. Very satisfying to smell, quite varietal but a little more delicate than most.

The palate is really balanced - A lovely ferrous quality sits amongst raspberries, strawberries and plums. There’s a delicious amaro cutting through that is in cahoots with a very sneaky line of blood orange like acidity. The wine is texturally resolved with quite fine tannin that will wake up more so with a little air.
It’s a really joyously easy drinking experience yet holding abundant and complex layers of fruit, tannin and acidity if you care to look.

This is a wine made from Nebbiolo grapes from three unique blocks on the Camel Back Ridge in Colbinabbin. The wine has an unusually light weight, this owes to the unusual point of ripeness at which these particular blocks are their most delicious. All of the winemaking choices are made to best reflect this moment of harvest.

Upon pressing of the macerated ferment, a single hogs-head was chosen from the many A-W block rose ferments.
Both the maceration and the rose were still very much fermenting at this point and were transferred to stainless together for the completion of fermentation.

The young wines were kept relatively warm and stored without lids to expose them to high levels of oxygen. This helped to fold the tannins into the wine and create a very beautiful, complex yet silky structure. Once the wines felt ready, lids were placed on and the wine was allowed to settle, before being moved to old puncheons for malo and a rest.

The wine was made without additions or filtraion of any kind.
