Overview

La Signora is a nebbiolo based wine produced from our Langhorne Creek vineyard. It is elegant and enchanting with a beguiling perfume and silky texture that sits on a bed of beautifully fine savoury tannins. Now released four and a half years after harvest, its purity, balance and structure make it a perfect accompaniment to good food, and enables it to reward long term cellaring.

Nebbiolo, said to be the king of all Italian varieties, originates from the Piedmont region of North-West Italy. It is arguably the most challenging and rewarding grape variety that exists. Even with the highest standards of winegrowing and winemaking, great nebbiolo wines can only be produced from great sites.

Expert Reviews

Light colour from Nebbiolo rather than the Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz/Malbec that complete the blend; a fragrant bouquet of tea, rose petal, spice and tar is followed by a richer, verging on sumptuous, palate before a savoury finish completes the circle. 94 points, Drink by 2020, James Halliday Wine Companion 2012

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Medium deep red in colour.

Aroma

The wine displays a complex autumnal nose of cherry, orange rind, aniseed, violet and rose and dried herbs.

Palate

The palate is savoury and multi-layered with ripe cherry, blueberry and grilled meat, full, firm tannins and a long, cleansing finish.

Winemaking Note

A dry winter followed by dry and windy conditions in spring resulted in poor flowering and fruit set and

miniscule yields. The ripening period was cool and without extremes and as a result the easily ripened fruit

showed above average concentration of flavour, tannin and sugars.
