    Black jellybeans stuffed in leather pants, dark cherry, iron filings, damp earth, sweet dried herbs. Medium bodied, clean acidity, cherry and blackcurrant, light but grainy chalky tannin and pretty decent length. A little gamey, perhaps, but such a good drinking wine. Recommended unconditionally.

    a classic vintage throughout much of Europe and Veneto was no exception. The vineyards began with excellent soil moisture levels and the vines responded well to ideal spring conditions before a very warm, dry summer slowed growth and limited yields. A warm , clear Autumn provided excellent ripening but crucially cool nights ensured the retention of naturally acidity. The wines are surprisingly fresh and aromatic with excellent depth of flavour. Pale and delicate in colour with subtle citrus and floral aromas. The palate is elegant and de Learn More

    Dark brick red in colour  with crimson highlights. The nose is already expressive and inviting with a complex array of fresh red fruits, dried herbs, forest undergrowth and aniseed. The palate is medium to full bodied, driven by core of supple raspberry and dark plum flavours courtesy of the Barbera. Nebbiolo adds structure and length alongside fine tannins. Enjoy in its youth with a wide range of rich Italian dishes. A 'mini' Barolo, for this price? Unbelievable ... yet true. Stock up, I have! Gavin Trott Learn More

    ... It really needs a couple of years at least to show itself properly. It tastes of peanut shells, dark cherries, leather, anise, chinotto, various dried herbs. It’s juicy and well balanced but stern and tannic through the finish. I wasn’t sure at first; when I came back a couple of hours later, I was certain. This is fabulous value. And, given some time, will be terrific drinking. 91+ points WInefront.com.au Learn More

    Cherry-laden perfume shows some exotic spice, floral notes, pepper too. Chewy sort of texture with a light juiciness at play, sour cherry spectrum flavours, but in great way, and finishes with a little tug of tannins and bright acidity. Neatly put together wine, feels a little understated in best kind of way. I like the vibe here." Rated : 93 Points Winefront.com.au Learn More

    "This is from younger vines in Serralunga (barolo). Different from other recently reviewed nebbs that were briefly 'aged' in stainless steel, this was matured in big oak for 18 months before bottling and is way more tertiary in its colour, aromas and flavours. As a result it presents more like a scaled-back barolo, with characters of earth, mineral and tar, with ever-present fragrant notes reinforcing the elegance. The resolved level of the fruit and tannins make this just as gluggable as its more primary contemporaries. And it went down a treat with pan-f Learn More

    Sangiovese, Tempraillo and Mataro fruit was crushed, chilled and held cold soaking separately for 12 hours in the press in order to extract vibrant colour and red berry flavours from the skins. The juices were cold settled and fermented separately prior to careful blending, stabilisation, clarification and bottling in May 2019. Slight residual sweetness remains in order to enhance the natural fruit characters. Learn More

Medium weight, light tannins lending a hand, herbal detail for complexity, even a touch of alpine herb. It’s such a beautiful, fine and shapely wine, medium weight with crunch-crunch-crunch.

    Nocturne Sangiovese Nebbiolo Rosé 2019
    The Nebbiolo fruit was hand-picked and, after chilling, whole bunch-pressed directly to old oak for fermentation. This took close to six weeks, after which the wine received a further four weeks’ maturation in barrel. At this stage the final blend between Sangiovese and Nebbiolo was decided and the wine was emptied from barrel/tank, settled, filtered, sulphured and bottled on 3rd August. We are super stoked with the final wine!!  The textur Learn More

    A wonderfully layered wine this montepulciano offers mixed forest fruit scents, slight spices linger; think woody notes. The palate shows generous berry fruit flavours, some great, refreshing acidity with subtle herb and spice complexities. A great, expressive example of montepulciano. Opaque ruby. Smoky black plum, earth and brown sugar on the nose, along with a hint of blackberry liqueur and mint.

    An ‘old world’ Spanish variety, Graciano is prized for its spiciness, acidity and tannin, and our 2015 delivers on all fronts. Lifted aromas of maple wood, baked rhubarb and sun dried tomato allure the senses. The surprisingly delicate palate is awash with bush pepper and vibrant acidity, finishing with fine, chalky tannins.

    This wine is incredibly exciting with a huge range of exotic florals and spices in the bouquet. I see hints of cinnamon or the richer cousin Cassia bark. Initially it has a broody dark berry tone and then lifts with some delicate floral notes like the roses grandpa used to obsessively tend; dark ruby rose. The palate explodes like the fruit of a pomegranate with a nice tang linking in with the gravelly tannins. It's like a locomotive on the palate, it keeps building steam. Great vitality and perfume!
