Adelaide Hills, South Australia
2016 Nebbiolo Rosato
Closure: Screw Top
Grape Variety: 100% Nebbiolo Rosato
Growing Region: Adelaide Hills
Vintage: 2015 was a vintage with very small yields and amazing fruit concentration. A small selection of our vineyard is planted with the famous Rosé clone of Nebbiolo (CVT CN111) which is ideally suited to producing fantastic dry Rose’s (or Rosato in Italian). The Boat Shed Nebbiolo Rosato 2015 is sourced entirely from Longview’s vineyard at Macclesfield, Adelaide Hills. The fruit was hand-picked, then chilled to 10˚C, the free run juice separated and fermented for this light rose style. Bentonite fining and coarse earth filtering ensures a clear, bright salmon finish.
Nose: With a wonderful light pink colour and slightly orange hue the 2016 Nebbiolo Rosato shows lifted orange peel, ripe strawberry and musk aromas
Palate: The palate has mouth filling maraschino cherry, pink grapefruit and musk with crisp acidity and a long fresh finish. Unmistakeably Nebbiolo.
Pairing: Tuna, Lobster, Salmon, or maybe a Charcuterie Plate or even a pizza.
Cellaring: Drink now
