We work with Lou Primavera at the beautiful Primavera Vineyard on Lusatia Park Road in Woori Yallock, Upper Yarra Valley. The Nebbiolo is located in a very small block on a mild north-west facing slope that harnesses all of the day & sunshine. The soils are bright red of volcanic, basalt origin which are fertile but free draining and give exceptional life to the resulting wines. In cooler years, the Nebbiolo may not fully ripen on this site, but in the more common warmer years this variety can really work.
Our 2018 Nebbiolo has a firm and precise stretch of tannin which coats a mouthfeel hovering between structured and round/intense. The nose mixes red berry and cherry, earth, spice and dried flowers in equal measure.
Time and air will let it unfurl out of the fruit & shy nature and into a layered, soft and complex drink that we're extremely proud of.
