Mayer Nebbiolo 2017



Needless to say we were all impressed with the wines and grateful to Timo for the 2017 vintage release tasting at Barrique.

This Nebbiolo is an amazing, fruit driven style at this youngish age. That will be Timo’s minimal intervention in action again. There is a blood orange characteristic and the typical tar and rose note is complimented by a tannic edginess that Nebbiolo is known for. Finely structured mouthfeel and expressive length. Venison with redcurrant jus would balance things out rather nicely. Drink soon beside food to counteract the tannin structure or age for a long, long time, this one can do both. Sometimes there are not enough points to go around.

Small farm producing hand crafted, single vineyard wine. Hand picking and natural winemaking processes. Unfined and unfiltered to show the true expression of the land. 2017 wines are very expressive and elegant with slinky fine tannins and are not over drying at all. This is one of the best vintages ever.
