'Nebbiolo from Glenlofty Vineyard. A parcel kept separate. No dosage. Disgorged August 2021.
Stewed cherries, sour cherries, rose water, slate-like minerally characters and a salted nut character to finish. Delicious. Detailed. Fine. Lightly moussey and tight in fizz. Savoury-ish but that nebb fruit character is alive here. Wonderful, beautiful expression.' - 95 points. Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
