Domenica Beechworth Nebbiolo 2021


Domenica sits 460m above sea level atop the granite ridge sweeping away to the south west of Beechworth. The wines are vividly reflective of their origin, a gripping mineral texture encasing the mature vine vitality of the varietals chosen to express it.

Wines are traditionally made; owner/winemaker Peter Graham has an impressive 13 years under his belt as assistant winemaker at Giaconda. Unsurprisingly, the Domenica wines are first class examples of small production, ‘hands on’ winemaking at its very best.

Ten acres of hand tended, low cropped vines result in a mere 1500 cases annually- the philosophy behind the growing and making of these wines is one of simplicity, pure varietal expression and a palpable sense of place.

"This may be the finest Australian nebbiolo yet tasted. A bright mid-crimson, shifting to a detailed spread of vigorous red fruit accents, hints of ironstone, dried thyme and lilac. Gorgeous stuff. Mid-weighted of feel such is the pixelated detail, levity and brightness in the mouth. A testament to the oft-used notion that nebbiolo bares considerable similarities to pinot noir. I could drink a great deal of this such is the structural compression and rivulet of pure, sumptuous fruit. Exquisite!" 95pts |
