2016 Rowlee Nebbiolo
Wine Rating 
 
91

This single vineyard wine was produced from the southern most end of the Rowlee vineyard that sits 950 meters above sea level in Orange.

A pretty light red in the glass with great clarity, the nose gives dusty dark cherry fruit with background notes of tar and blood orange. A racy line of acidity and piquant tannin structure define the wine with a crunchiness to red cherry fruit and some subtle spiced notes. There is an enjoyable dryness and touch of iodine to finish, with good purity of fruit shining through.

A release that is true to the varietal in terms of character and will have a long life ahead of it in the cellar.
