Description

Details

A modern, cutting-edge collection of wines - just look at the labels - from the passionate and slightly bonkers trio of Dylan and Justin Fairweather and winemaker Sam Berketa. AB&D was founded in McLaren Vale in 2008 and is unconventional in its approach; there are no ‘regional, varietal or stylistic’ boundaries, just great wines from great fruit. The plan is to craft a different wine for every letter of the alphabet - from Apostle (Shiraz-Durif blend) to Zaptung (crown-capped Prosecco). Each wine is unique and has a story and eye-catching label to go with it. A fab collecting of wines that a causing quite a buzz in the wine scene.

 Every fog must lift. And when it does, we shall devour the treasures unveiled. While Nebbiolo may derive its name from the Italian word ‘nebbia’, meaning ‘fog’, relating to the fog-like milky veil that forms over the berries as they mature, our Fog is even more mysterious and whimsical still. The three year maturation process in season large format oak and barriques is necessary to unleash the grape’s full potential. The reward, a tannic wine with velvety mouthfeel and characteristics of Turkish Delight, sandalwood and rose petal is a welcoming, comforting light at the end of a long, murky tunnel, making our Fog a more Nebbi-YOLO than Nebbiolo.

Vineyards

Grapes are picked from the Protero Vineyard in Kenton Valley, Gumeracha, Adelaide Hills, South Australia. Here the soil is sandy loam with pockets of clay over bedrock.

Vinification

Crushed, inoculated, and left for eight weeks on skins, the wine is then matured for two years in seasoned large format oak, then one year in old barrique.

Tasting Notes

With the look of leather, smells of tobacco and rose petals, and tastes of Turkish Delight and sandalwood, this is a Nebbiolo that can't be denied.
