2015 Denton Nebbiolo – $48

from 288.00

Viticulture  
Site: Denton Vineyard – Yarra Valley
Soil type: Granite
Aspect: North-West 

The Nebbiolo block sits half way up the north western slope, catching all available sunshine hours. The granitic sand over granite boulders and long, slow growing season provide a very special and unique terroir. 

This unique micro-climate and soil profile contribute lots of bright, fresh red fruit, red flower perfume, and fine tannin on an acid frame.  

Winemaking
Destemmed, wild yeast fermented and held on skins for 20 days with frequent plunging and foot stomping. No temperature control. Pressed to 500 litre french oak puncheons (20% new) and left unsulfured for 18 months prior to bottling without fining or filtration.  

Vintage 2015
An excellent growing season. A long mild summer with low disease pressure and reliable rainfall at the right time. Harvest was later than average and the fruit was in near perfect condition with very good acidity and tannin levels.
