Gundog Estate Indomitus Rosa 2018
I made the comment in a recent review of a Gundog Estate wine that Matt Burton doesn't make bad wine. It's almost as though he's produced this just to prove what we already know. This is a cracker! Fist pumping, big smiles, large pours and all that jazz...
This is the second release of this label but the first time I've had the chance to have a looksy. From the Hilltops region in NSW, Nebbiolo fruit was pressed off skins after 12 hours and matured in old oak with solids for four months.
If you can't get enthused about this wine, well, you can finish that sentence...
Raspberries, dried rose petals, strawberries and expected cherry. It's juicy and generous with lashings of spice and red earth rolled throughout. The tight acid keeps everything in check to ensure neat lines are followed. It's one of those wines I'd rather drink than write about. Shoulder the person beside you to get a glass first.
Drink now to three years.
