Traviarti Nebbiolo 2018 Victoria Beechworth

$63.95

Traviarti Nebbiolo 2018  provided a new depth of both fruit and tannin. No doubt a combination of additional vine maturity and the season. The wine is intrinsically in balance and we are confident this wine will cellar many years however a quick turn in the decanter and the ripe nature of the vintage sees this approachable already.

Description

Traviarti Nebbiolo 2018

Traviarti Nebbiolo 2018  Strong red cherry juice, a lick of Parisian almond shows some green herb, pepper and anise characters. Sinewy texture with salty-ultra fine mineral feel and firm-dusty-ferrous tannins. A freshness and lift in 2018, a touch breathy in profile, though that feels fine. Fruit verity, true cherry, lightly sour, earthy complexity, is delightful. It’s a charmer from hello.

At around 600m altitude on red decomposed shale and mudstone soils just above the Beechworth township our Red Hill vineyard is 100% Nebbiolo, planted to multiple clones on a combination of different rootstocks and own root material.With just over 1,000 vines our vineyard is considered tiny although if you multiply 1,000 by every time you stop to look, prune or tend it quickly begins to appear quite large! Red Hill rises to the east behind Beechworth coincidentally also home to another Nebbiolo vineyard planted just weeks after ours. Two people thinking this is the spot for Nebbiolo feels like a good omen to us. We are aiming to create a vineyard intrinsically in balance ie the goldilocks vineyard with just the right amount of fruit to just the right amount of leaves and just the right amount of root system. So far so good. The fruit has shown intensity with a combination of good colour and acidity.In 2018 we planted a new vineyard on the Beechworth Wangaratta Rd, a venture with a friend which will become our Rosso block of 80% Nebbiolo and 20% Barbera. This will also be our ongoing source of Chardonnay and the potential of this site is very exciting.
