Notes from Owen:
Elusive 2021 Nebbiolo
Cameron & Robert John have been growing Nebbiolo at the Malakoff Vineyard for a while now, the vineyard is situated in the Landsbrough Valley Pyrenees Victoria. A fantastic vintage for the Nebbiolo off this site, the yields were high so got to make an entry level version.
3 harvest harvest dates this year, across a month. Fermentation was in open concrete wax lined very little whole bunch, basket pressed earlier than previous vintages. élevage for 12 months in 500L puncheons bottled in July 2022. It has been another patient waiting game, the wine looks so good to go.
