Small Batch Nebbiolo 2022

Cellar door and allocation only  - please email for online orders


Winemaker: Erinn Klein

Grape(s): Nebbiolo

GI: Adelaide Hills (Mount Lofty Ranges, South Australia)

Site(s): Ngeringa Rufus Vineyard

Vineyard notes: The Nebbiolo grapes are grown on a steep westerly facing slope of the Rufus Vineyard at about 360m above sea level, on rocky red ironstone and schist over clay. Quite a challenging vineyard site – facing west, it receives the belting summer sun and often is exposed to characteristic winds of the Adelaide Hills. From the top of this vineyard in the distance, however, one can see Lake Alexandrina and the mouth of the Murray River, consequently receiving cooling evening breezes, which do much to preserve fruit acids and flavours through the critical weeks of ripening. Only 400 vines planted.

Winemaking: A small batch of Nebbiolo made from a Rosé clone. Fully destemmed, gentle extraction by hand, wild yeast fermentation, extended maceration for 8 weeks, and 11 months maturation in one older French oak 500L barrel.

No fining. Estate bottled with small amounts of sulphites added before bottling.

Tasting note: Wild strawberries, dried orange and dark chocolate jump out of the glass, followed by more earthy notes of dried mushroom, iodine, autumn leaves and leather. On the pallet plenty of bright red fruit, approachable 'Nebbiolo’ tannins and a long and savoury finish.

Closure: Stelvin Screw Cap

ABV: 14.%

Label Design: Ngeringa bases its branding and imagery on its relationship with the land: The logo makes the shape of Mount Barker Summit and the icon, in a circle, makes reference to the full moon and to the biodynamic practice of working with the rhythms of nature. The sheoak sits inside the circle, reflecting the name, Ngeringa, the place of sheoak.
