2014 Denton Nebbiolo

2015 Denton Nebbiolo

Yarra Valley, Victoria


Winemaker: Luke Lambert
Vineyard/Year: Denton View Hill / 2014
Being poured at: Coda

This wine is sourced from a single block within the Denton Vineyard.

Unique for the Yarra Valley, the Denton vineyard is a granite outcrop full of large granite boulders under granitic sand. This vineyard always contributes plenty of bright red fruit and floral perfume along with gun-flint, graphite characters typical of a granitic soil profile. 120 metres altitude. North West facing slope.

Tasting notes

Destemmed, wild yeast fermented and held on skins for 30 days with submerged cap. No temperature control. Frequent pump overs and plunging, gentle air inclusion. Pressed to barrel (500l – 29 year old puncheons). Left unsulfured for 18 months in oak prior to bottling without fining or filtration.
