2015 Nebbiolo

This is our second release of Nebbiolo from TarraWarra. It is ideally suited to the Yarra Valley and is thriving in its location, yielding a wine that has classic Nebbiolo perfume and structure. The wine has a bright garnet colour, aromas of roses, smoked meats and spice, while the palate has bright fruit driven home by characteristic Nebbiolo tannins. It will reward years of cellaring.

Site Selection: A long north-west facing block with clay loam soils. The block has long produced red varieties with full flavour and a firm tannin structure. The northerly aspect allows for ideal conditions for this late- ripening variety.

Vintage Notes: 2015 was an excellent vintage in the Yarra Valley. A warmer season with cool nights produced ripe fruit flavours with strong tannins. Temperatures hovered in the low to mid-twenties from veraison to harvest. Cool nights and mild days gave optimum ripening conditions, with the fruit in perfect condition at harvest.

This is only the second release of the Italian variety nebbiolo from Yarra Valley winery TarraWarra Estate but winemaker Clare Halloran and her team seem to have the variety nailed stylistically. Perfumed and delicately structured, this is a very good alternative to pinot noir or gamay for those who err to the lighter side of the red wine spectrum. This has an attractive rose garden bouquet leading on to bright red fruit notes and hints of Italian deli goods. There is some impressive architecture here along with the pretty fruit; it is a wine with lovely balance. Drink now with a charcuterie plate, or cellar confidently.

CAMPBELL MATTINSON The Wine Front, 31 August 2018
The growing and making of pinot noir is a walk in the park compared with Nebbiolo, and pinot noir is “notoriously fickle”. What I like about this is that it smells authentic. It’s not overly expressive but it smells like the real deal. Herbs, pencils and anise kind of thing. Sweetness isn’t a smell but you can usually sense it; this wine doesn’t activate the sweetness sensors. It’s a little rustic, a lot savoury, more than anything: varietal. The palate is true to the nose, acidity and tannin in key roles, savouriness and leathery/orangey/licoricey notes playing soft tunes. It’s not bad, and it should improve with more time in bottle.
