About this Wine

"It all hones towards the finish. Sweet-sour cherries, plums, leather and anise characters take on notes of decaying roses and mint, a flash of blood orange too. It's varietally true, sheeted with tannin and - most impressively - has plenty of carry on through the finish. It's a goodun'." 94pts - Campbell Mattinson - WineFront

About this Winery

First planted in 1945 by a local Italian vigneron, and then purchased and expanded by Brown Brothers in 1950, Virago Vineyard has a long viticultural history. With only terracing left from the original vineyards, 2000 Nebbiolo vines were planted in 2007. The block is on a moderately inclined, north-west facing slope at an altitude of 270 metres and consists of a combination of five different Lambia clones on one hectare.

Winemaker is Rick Kinzbrunner (Giaconda) so of course he needs no introduction to Chardonnay lovers worldwide. Rick makes Virago Nebbiolo in the traditional Italian way: The wine remains on skins for an extended period in  a large concrete tank, is then basket pressed and transferred to a 1,600 litre Gamba oval cask for approximately three years of ageing.
