This vintage of 2016 the Nebbiolo came in the last of all the grapes and was hand-picked in early April from 20 year old vines at the Timbertop vineyard. Typically light brick red in colour, floral aromas of tea-rose, along with sour cherry and plums, dried raisin and spice are overlaid with the savoury notes of tobacco leaf and leather. Matured in three to five year old French oak barriques for 15 months, the fine but pronounced grape tannins and a good acidity frame the fruit and add to the structure of the wine.
