Soumah The Butcher Thomas Hendy Cut 2021


A blend of Yarra Valley finesse and the richness of Heathcote, this Soumah Thomas Hendy cut brings together Syrah, Cabernet and Nebbiolo. Despite being an odd bunch, the blend works extremely well.

Nepenthe Pinnacle Nebbiolo 2021


These "drink now" Nebbiolos are just fabulous to kick back with. Sure, the real deal with a bootleg of age is epic gear, but the insight these provide as a result of astute winemaking fills my bucket.

Arguably the best Nebbiolo producer in Australia, Luke Lambert has excelled once again with this 2019 release.

Nuova Scuola Nebbiolo 2021


Sourced from a tiny vineyard a mere stone’s throw from the cellar door, this is a very clever Nebbiolo.

Gundog Estate Indomitus Rosa 2022


Matt Burton sources fruit from a number of regions and it seems he has a habit of polishing a few gems. In short, this is delicious. A fabulous Rosé, I could neck the lot. Find this.

Susuro Farfella Nebbiolo 2021


Soft and lacy, this Nebbiolo from the famed Pyrenees Malakoff vineyard is well worth a look. It's a disco for the senses. An excellent example of what modern Nebbiolo looks like, you can't help but feel upbeat in its presence.

Gundog Estate Indomitus Rosa 2021


Lacy pleasure. Delicate and curvaceous. Gee, we are blessed with the high standard of Rosés available on the shelves. Considered winemaking continues to push the bar higher. Here is a brilliant Rosé from Gundog Estate.

Pizzini Coronamento Nebbiolo 2016


Gee, I love the new label of the Coronamento with Robert Pizzini playing in the mountains of Trentino circa 1950. A polished Nebbiolo as you'd expect from the Pizzini's, this is an excellent wine.

Pizzini La Volpe Nebbiolo 2019


Gee, I love these new Pizzini labels. They just open the door to a new legion of fans. This Nebbiolo will do the same given its ready-to-drink now persona - something Nebbiolo of old never dreamt of.

Clever Winemaking 101. Lovers of Rosé will find a happy home with this beauty. It's creamy, savoury and damn right delish.

Born and Raised Malakoff Nebbiolo 2017

This Malakoff vineyard is the business. Every time I see a wine from it my eyes light up. A fabulous Nebbiolo right here folks.

Born and Raised Heathcote Nebbiolo 2017

Nebbiolo done two ways. Two different vineyards, both handled the same. This is an very tidy wine from the sandy Heathcote soils.

Soumah Ai Fiori Rosato 2020


Ai Fiori means 'amongst the flowers' in Italian. In time, the aim is for this wine to be a blend of 100% Italian varieties. But as some young vines mature, the blend for now is Nebbiolo, Pinot Noir and Brachetto.

TarraWarra Estate Nebbiolo 2017

This is the last release of a TarraWarra Nebbiolo until 2021 due to that pesky Phylloxera. The vineyard was replanted so we just have to be patient for now and just enjoy what we have here, An impressive wine and a great way to hit the pause button.

Santolin Wines Il Capo Cosa Nostra 2017


Not your usual bed fellows but this blend of Nero d'Avola and Sangiovese works quite well.

Vino Intrepido Spanner in the Works Nebbiolo 2019

James Scarcebrook is The Intrepid Wino. His passion is contagious and you can find him discussing all things wine on his podcast named The Vincast or catch him going about his exploration on his YouTube site. He's also ventured into winemaking and has produced a range of wines since 2016. I was thrilled to receive an email from James not too long ago asking if I could review some of his new releases. And what a place to start with this beauty! This is no spanner in the works either, let it be known. It is best described as an impressive rendition of Nebbiolo.

Arfion Nebbiolo 2018

Dave Mackintosh is an uber cool dude. To say I was pumped when samples of his wines arrived would be an understatement. I first met "Dave Bro" back in 2013. What immediately stood out to me was his absolute humility and calm disposition. At the time he produced only a few barrels and was happy with his lot and not wanting production to get too big. Fast forward to the present and his popularity surged and then some - good things come to good people I say. 
This Nebbiolo is a beauty! So pretty. So captivating.

Tar and Roses Nebbiolo Rosé 2019

A fab Rosé hands down. "Inspired by the women in my life" are the words on the label courtesy of winemaker Narelle King.
