Vineyard 28 Dolcetto 2018

First production for this wine from Vineyard 28 in Geographe. You see the signs to cellar door on the highway down to Margaret River, and you catch a glimpse of a sandy-dirt road going through a forest. Spooky/romantic nexus. Don’t go in alone with a lover. Or do. This wine won Gold and Trophy at the Alternative Varieties Wine Show this year. Nice start.

It does what dolcetto does best in perfume, act fresh, sweetish, cherry-like. The palate is cherry and kirsch, lean and precise, with surprisingly tight tannins and a pinch, nervous finish. There’s good bite of acidity, but, if anything, a little too much. That being said, the DNA of the variety is strong, so for enthusiasts of serious renditions of dolcetto, this could be an Ace in the hole. A bit too shrill for me, but hey, I can see the wood for the trees.
