First Drop Big Blind Nebbiolo Barbera 2012
This wine demonstrates the perfect marriage of these two Piedmontese varieties - the fruit and acidity of Barbera melds perfectly with the savoury character and structure of Nebbiolo. Although it's an approachable style from a single vineyard near Kersbrook in the northern Adelaide Hills (340m above sea level on complex sandy clay loams over shale), it's also serious kit!
