2020 LATTA Vino Headwaters Nebbiolo
Cameron & Robert John have been pioneering Nebbiolo at the Malakoff Vineyard for over 15 years, the vineyard is situated in the Landsbrough Valley Pyrenees Victoria. Another ripper vintage for the Nebbiolo off this site, even though the yields were so low compared to other seasons & the season had its challenges.
Only one harvest date this year, just before the late rains came though. Fermentation was in open concrete wax lined very little whole bunch, basket pressed earlier than previous vintages. élevage for 12 months in 2 x 500L puncheons bottled in June 2021. It has been another patient waiting game, the wine looks so good to go. future releases will be able to go back to longer maceration & élevage (2021 is still on skins now in at the end of June) very excited to get this out!
