Tar & Roses Nebbiolo 2018 13.5% 750ml

Tar & Roses Nebbiolo 2018 13.5% 750ml

Tar and roses are flavours synonymous with nebbiolo and this red embodies the name like no other. Black liquorice sweetness, leather and olive tapenade characters add to this delicious mix, combined with bold tannins, giving this impressive wine flexibility to cellar for several years. It will go down a treat with braised beef and hearty winter vegetables.

Expert Review:

James Halliday- 95 Points. Machine-harvested fruit crushed to small, open fermenters and hand plunged 3 times a day. Pressed to tank, racked off gross lees to barrel for mlf and 12 months' maturation in seasoned oak. This has tapped into the beguiling, fragrant aromatics and florals of the nebbiolo grape. Quite captivating, with rose petal, violet, musk and sweet, wild herbs. The grape's notorious tannins are tamed and fine, allowing the beauty of its red fruits, red licorice and bitter-chocolate complexity to shine. Quite a star performance.
