Moppity Cato Hilltops Nebbiolo 2015
Italy’s answer to Pinot Noir for viticulturists; the Holy Grail. Nebbiolo is notoriously difficult to grow, requiring meticulous attention to detail to ensure that flavour doesn’t lose its enduring battle with tannin and acidity. Like Pinot, if done poorly, it can be mediocre at best. However, the marriage of site, clone, season and precision viticulture can deliver results that are truly astonishing and worth all the heartache.
