'The Fog' Nebbiolo
 
Tar and roses are flavours synonymous with nebbiolo and this red embodies the name like no other. Black liquorice sweetness, leather and olive tapenade characters, combined with bold tannins give this impressive wine flexibility to cellar for several years. It will go down a treat with your classic spaghetti al pomodoro.
Tasting Note
WINEMAKERS COMMENTS
Nebbiolo is a thin skinned variety known for its unusually light colour and deceptively high level of tannins. In fertile soils it can produce large crops with large bunches and berries. The Heathcote vineyard, while close to the rich deep Cambrian vein of soil, is tempered by harder granite gravels that has seen the vines produce a more balanced canopy to crop ratio. The balanced crop level has meant even ripening and minimal disease pressures.
PALATE & AROMA
Wet bitumen melds with floral notes, damp earth and hints of leather and cranberry. Fine substantial tannin on the palate, dried petals plus earthy tar, elegant and long on the finish.
