Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show 2012 - Bronze

Tasting Notes

Colour: Deep concentrated bright pomegranate red.
Nose: An introduction of sweet red cherries, rose and lilac notes and hints of ripe tomato and truffles.
Palate: The superb balance between the sweet spice and sweet fruit, together with the cherry, cranberry type tanginess, makes for a very thought provoking and appealing palate.

Ageing Potential

This wine will still be offering much pleasure at age 20.

In The Vineyard

Nabucco 2009 was made from the sixth crop of Giulio Bertrand's prized Nebbiolo vineyard and as with its 2006 maiden vintage, Nabucco 2009 returns to 100% pure Nebbiolo.
A cool January led into a hot February and dry March resulting in no interruptions or dilutions of sugars. Cool maritime influences and day/night temperature differences indicated the good quality that was to follow.

Good harvest conditions resulted in a complete wine with loads of structure but keeping the elegance that befits this Italian varietal. It will require a few years for this refined, deeply nuanced wine to come together.

Vineyard: Stellenbosch
Region: Helderberg ward

In The Cellar

15 months in 5% tight grain new French oak and 95% old 300l barriques.
