A ripper vintage for Nebbiolo, even though it was an early harvest across the board it wasn’t that early for Nebbiolo in Western Victoria. Grapes Grown By Cameron & Robert John at the Malakoff Vineyard in the Landsbrough Valley Pyrenees Victoria.


Two vineyard parcels were kept separate in fermentation & élevage, It has been another patient waiting game, very excited to get this out!

Woah! A Latta wine in a claret bottle! Exciting in itself. Anyway, not sure why, but I feel less comfortable judging Australian Nebbiolo than I do with wines from Italy. Familiarity, I guess, though the same rules apply to both. Oh, let me just do my best. 

Juicy cherry, sweet almond, dried flowers, white pepper, mint and liquorice. Medium-bodied, clear and fresh, raspberry and red cherry to taste, with savoury new leather/tobacco flavours in play. Spice too. Tannin is of the ‘brick dust’ kind, or so I like to say. Pulls dry and long on the finish, the tannin something of a highlight. A very impressive Aussie Neb.

Geez I like this. More of a classicism here than expected. Very long, fine-shapely tannins. Rings the bell for ‘excellent’. Very good review and words by GW. 94
