McIvor Estate Nebbiolo - Sold Out
This nebbiolo, a classic northern Italian varietal, is a very bright crimson colour showing cherry on the nose and palate and boasts a tight structure with an enduring finish of fine grained balanced tannins. Drink now or hold out until 2015.
"A really good expression of this difficult variety and a treat to drink with high protein and gamey food."
- Sunday Canberra Times, Wine Reviewer - Chris Shanahan
"Very good bright crimson; a major surprise, with delicious flowery, small berry fruit flavours and, best of all, fine-grained, balanced tannins. 94/100."
