Winery & Vintage Info

Nebbiolo is a thin skinned variety known for its unusually light colour and deceptively high level of tannins. In fertile soils it can produce large crops with large bunches and berries. The Heathcote vineyard, while close to the rich deep Cambrian vein of soil, is tempered by harder granite gravels that has seen the vines produce a more balanced canopy to crop ratio. The balanced crop level has meant even ripening and minimal disease pressures.

The fruit for the Tar & Roses Heathcote Nebbiolo 2020 was machine harvested and crushed to small open fermenters. It was then hand plunged three times a day. After approximately 10 days of fermentation, during which time the temperature and acid levels were monitored and adjusted as necessary, it was pressed to tank using a gentle air bag press. The wine was racked off gross lees directly to barrel to finish malolactic fermentation and mature in older used barriques for 12 months.Winery Notes
