The Oddbins Take

This wine is a bit of a curiosity, it's kind of like when you go to a rave only to discover that your old English teacher is working the decks. You think, 'surely this can't work, I've never once imagined Mr Williams in this context, the universe would invariably implode if these two opposing forces of my life somehow coalesced.' Then it turns out Mr Williams is a badass, shares your exact taste in house music and spins those records as if he was a young Tim Westwood, but obviously infinitely better.


If you've never experienced this phenomenon unfortunately this similarly may pass over your head but we'll soldier on. Nebbiolo is typically found in the traditional Italian winemaking region of Piemonte, where it is wonderful. Yet here we find Nebbiolo made with minimal intervention in Adelaide Hills. You might be sceptical, then you discover the 2017 Nebbiolo Fresco displays bright aromas of cherry-cola partnered with savoury spice, roses and violets. The palate is refreshing with cherry and strawberry characteristics before finishing with a savoury edge, fine tannins and well-balanced acidity. See, just like your old teacher at a rave!
