Jilly Wines Lone Ranger Nebbiolo 2013
Great to see Nebbiolo made in Australia and exciting to see this expression of the grape from young winemaker Jared Dixon, from the New England region in NSW. This Nebbiolo has a pronounced nose of roses, rosewater, sweet raspberries, redcurrants, red cherries and a tiny bit of liquorice. Very fresh and fruity on the palate with slight herbaceous notes, followed by a nice smokey and dried meat flavour. Medium bodied with nice acid and fine tannins, this a great example of Australian Nebbiolo. If you love Pinot Noir and want something different this a great wine to get into. Only 260 bottles made.
