2015 SubRosa Nebbiolo
|Status||Sustainable practices, Low Intervention|
SubRosa, a micro winery was founded by Grampians winemaker Adam Louder and partner Nancy Panter, producing just 400 cases per year of small batch, low intervention wines. Adam calls his winemaking style intuitive and focuses on low intervention – with little or no additions throughout the process. SubRosa is latin for ‘under the rose’. In ancient times, a rose was hung over the table as a symbol of secrecy. What was said or happened around the table, stayed at the table. These wines are certainly not keeping quiet, but they are quietly being added to ‘hatted’ restaurants, high-end cafes and Wine Revolution online wine store!
|Wine||After being hand-picked and crushed this wine was ignored for 3 weeks and then aged for 18 months in old oak. Medium style, savoury and black cherry characters, fine tannins, fresh acidity. Vegan friendly.|
‘I guide the grapes from the vineyard to the bottle and let the grapes do all the hard work. It’s different every season which is what makes winemaking so interesting, you never know what surprises mother nature will present’
