Adelina Nebbiolo 2016

For a number of years now Adelina have been working with an exciting parcel of Nebbiolo fruit from the Bowe Lees vineyard at Woodside (the inaugural 2011 release was drawn from the agreeably named Talc Hill Vineyard, located at Gumeracha). The Bowe Lees vineyard lies 390 metres above sea level and was planted between 1998 and 2002. Col fills in the winemaking specs thus: fruit was handpicked and destemmed; maceration times varied, up to (a Lunga Macerazione) 71 days on skins. Post pressing, the wine was racked to barrel for 10 months for malo and maturation. The earlier bottling is designed to catch as much primary charm as possible. And it works. It's a fluid, juicy and complex Nebbiolo that drinks beautifully now. - Bibendum
