Moppity Vineyards Cato Hilltops Nebbiolo 2017

Aromas of spice, strong dark fruits, floral notes, complex and intense greet your nose. The palate is full bodied, layered with spice and fine tannins at the front, rich fruit in the middle, balanced by tight acid, leading to a long fruit driven finish. Nebbiolo is still relatively new in Australia. While this wine is true to variety it has a regional twist, enjoy now or keep for five plus years. Stephen Read
