Architects of Wine - Macclesfield Nebbiolo 2019
Region: Adelaide Hills
Planted in 1997, this is now one of, if not the oldest Nebbiolo vineyard in the Adelaide Hills. Its 100% De-stemmed with daily cap plunging. It was a mix of free run juice & pressings after being left on skins for a 79 day maceration. 15.5 months élevage on gross lees in well seasoned French Oak and 10+ months in bottle prior to release.
A very light and elegant Nebbiolo. Aromatic with notes of red fruit, plum and those little red frog lollies. Surprisingly deep and structured with firm tannins that show more with air. Finishes dry and complex. Great.
