Varney Wines Adelaide Hills Nebbiolo 2019


People call Pinot Noir the heartbreak grape. While that is true, Nebbiolo also drives its fans to extraordinary lengths to find a wine that lives up to expectations. Thankfully, on this occasion, we have an impressive Australian example that manages to display the haunting delicacy seen in the best examples. Gently fragrant florals, potpourri and spice aromas over a bed of the sweetest red Christmas cherries starts us off. The palate then delivers an elegant expression of Nebbiolo with juicy fruit very well matched to fresh acidity and well integrated tannins making for a delicate but still delicious and strongly varietal style which fits well into the Langhe mould, for those looking for an Italian reference point. A fine, detailed and long finish rounds off the package nicely making this wine an ideal starter for anyone wanting to take their first steps with this variety.
