The Heathcote Nebbiolo is handpicked from a single vineyard in Heathcote. The vineyard is a two acre dry grown block planted in 1996 to the Nebbiolo clone 230 Lampia, which is a high quality, low vigour clone selected from the Neive commune in Barbaresco. The soil is free draining and made up of lightly ferric ironstone and sandy soils.
Fairly intense showing morello cherry and strawberry with dried fennel, rose petal and musk notes. The seasoned French oak brings balanced vanilla and oak spice.
REVIEWS & AWARDS
“Luke Lambert is a real rock star of the Aussie wine world. Amongst his latest breakthrough hits is the epic Heathcote Nebbiolo 2008, which has all the fragrant harmony one could hope for from this wild and often heavily distorted style.”
