Nebbiolo is one of Italy’s finest grape varieties, often compared to Pinot Noir for its finicky nature in the vineyard and haunting fragrance in the glass. The fruit for this wine was grown by one of our family growers in the Hilltops region of New South Wales. The vineyard is situated on a rolling hillside near Young at an altitude of 500m and has rich red volcanic soils. This vineyard has warmer days to ripen our Nebbiolo and cool nights to ensure our fruit is grown with the richness, aromatic development and balance that this region is renowned for.
