2018 Arfion Primavera Nebbiolo
Notes from winemaker Dave Mackintosh:
We work with Lou Primavera at the beautiful Primavera Vineyard on Lusatia Park Road in Woori Yallock, Upper Yarra Valley. The Nebbiolo is located in a very small block on a mild north-west facing slope that harnesses all of the day’s sunshine. The soils are bright red of volcanic, basalt origin which are fertile but free draining and give exceptional life to the resulting wines. In cooler years, the Nebbiolo may not fully ripen on this site, but in the more common warmer years this variety can really work.
