Tar & Roses The Fog Nebbiolo 2021 Red Wine – Heathcote, Australia
Tar and roses are flavours synonymous with nebbiolo and this red embodies the name like no other. Black liquorice sweetness, leather and olive tapenade characters, combined with bold tannins give this impressive wine flexibility to cellar for several years. It will go down a treat with your classic spaghetti al pomodoro.
Nebbiolo is a thin skinned variety known for its unusually light colour and deceptively high level of tannins. In fertile soils it can produce large crops with large bunches and berries. The Heathcote vineyard, while close to the rich deep Cambrian vein of soil, is tempered by harder granite gravels that has seen the vines produce a more balanced canopy to crop ratio. The balanced crop level has meant even ripening and minimal disease pressures.
About Tar & Roses
Since 2004, Don Lewis and Narelle King have been making wine in Priorat, Spain. Their immersion within the classic European wine regions and varietals sparked their interest in how these varietals could be grown and made in their own regions within Central Victoria. This fascination was the catalyst for the creation of Tar & Roses. With wines produced from fruit grown in Heathcote, Strathbogie Ranges, Alpine Valleys and extending to Priorat in Spain, Tar & Roses reflects the partnership between Don and Narelle, the multi-regions of Spain, Italy and Australia, and traditional winemaking alongside the new.
