SubRosa Nebbiolo 2013

There some more information on SubRosa on the Sub Rosa Chardonnay 2013 review here.

This comes from Mount Cole vineyard. About six kilometres north of Mount Langi. There’s one acre of nebbiolo planted here, planted 1999/2000. “It’s a prick of a spot; doesn’t get much sunlight. Howling winds come through. It’s really hard to get ripe. But I love working in this block. Makes it pretty unique”, says winemaker Adam Louder. Interestingly, and another one to chalk up for a very good vineyard tasting, from 2015 this wine will be from Malakoff Vineyard in the Pyrenees. “I had no idea what I was doing when I came at this. After three days in an open fermenter the skins looked like shit, so I stopped plunging and let it do its own thing. Gassed it and shrunk wrap it; let it go”. It’s a lighter shade of nebbiolo that’s emerged.
