A new wine from a familiar site…Nebbiolo planted in 1998 by Peter and Malcolm Fyffe on a north facing hillside in the Yandoit Hills, with younger basaltic soils (Mt Franklin event) over ancient marine sandstone and siltstone. The Nebbiolo sits lower on the hill and in some years really struggles to fully ripen. 2018 was a standout year with plenty of sunshine and heat allowing tannins to ripen and flavour to concentrate, to go along with natural high acid levels for Nebbiolo at this site.

In the winery i played it pretty straight; 100% destemmed and into a open top milk vat and pushed extraction a little further than i normally would with regular pump overs. Post ferment the wine sat on skins for 2 weeks to further build tannins and was pressed, rested and moved to two seasoned puncheons for 11 months. The wine was racked to tank with a small sulphur addition and bottled under cork, with a further 12 months resting in bottle before release. – Minim Wines
