What you get with Traviarti Nebbiolo is the best Australian Nebbiolo that I have tasted. Especially if you are a fan of the Italian Barolo/Barbaresco style. Better still, this wine will get better with time in the bottle but also as the years go by. As the vineyard is still quite young and has a lot of improvement to offer. My tip is you need some of this lovely Traviarti Nebbiolo to drink now, some to drink in 7-15 years from now. And you need to buy it every year to track the improvement of the wine.
Right now, it is an earthy, cured meats, ironstone mineral, dark-fruited, violet tinged wine. The colour is pale, as you would expect for Neb. And the palate shows off some grippy tannins that cover your mouth and tongue. Some slightly tart cherry acid. And you get a pulpy richness on the core which promises much more to come. Do. Not. Miss. Out. !
Built on the fame and drive of Giaconda, the region of Beechworth has a lot to offer wine lovers. With a good diversity of styles from rich Chardonnay to Pinot Noir as well as Shiraz and Cabernet all doing well it is a must-visit place.
Famously producing long-lived red wines which are light of colour, but abundant in tannin from Barolo, Barbaresco and various other local wines. This is the variety that defines the region. Typical flavours include Tar, roses, anise, cherry, blackberry and truffle.
