Eden Road Nebbiolo 2015, Hilltops, AUD $35
A simply delicious and captivating wine that requires a little time to open and reveal its true colours. The nose is quiet at first, with a touch of spice and dried orange peel. However, with time, the wine expands to unveil a gorgeous palate brimming with red fruit flavours. The wine is light-to-medium weight, with tannins in check and the citrus rind elements running through the wine are simply fabulous.
Sourced from a small vineyard in Hilltops, with the ferment containing a small proportion of whole bunches, followed by extended post-ferment maceration and maturation in old puncheons.
