Lethbridge Nebbiolo, the story: "What does one buy for a husband of almost twenty years who, dare I say it, buys for himself whatever he wants! Late in vintage 2013 the phone rang, it was Robert John from the Malakoff Vineyard who had heard about our penchant for unusual varieties enquiring as to whether we wanted any Viognier. We had made a pact ‘no small batches’ and so after declining the offer I was somehow possessed to ask whether he had any Nebbiolo. It was Rays birthday in May and what better present. A great Nebbiolo rivals Pinot Noir in its elusiveness and Ray loves nothing more than a challenge. Two tonne of Nebbiolo arrived, difficult to wrap, but has given Ray many hours of fun, an excuse to spend a fortune on Barolo and will provide much pleasure for years to come. It worked again in 2014 and when you are onto a good idea…" Maree.
This is the third release of the Lethbridge Nebbiolo sourced from the wonderful vineyard in the Pyrenees. The wine has autumnal flavours with deliciously firm tannins.
