The vines of the Altura Vineyard are now 40 years old though the nebbiolo portion was only grafted over in 2008. All the signs are good so in 2015 a large merlot block was also grafted over the nebbiolo.

As far as I know this doesn’t see any new oak, but on tasting/smelling the wine oak certainly makes a clear impression. Toasty, malt-like characters weave through tar, leather and liquorice. It’s a full-bodied style, or it is in a varietal context, with grunty tannin and refreshing acidity combining to pull the flavours through to a sustained finish. Oak dulls the freshness a bit; it feels like a distinctly ‘Australian’ rendition of the variety, in a slightly old school meaning of the word. That said, there’s no disputing the pure quality (and length) of it.
