Sauvignon Blanc 2016
This fruit is grown a stones throw away from Nillumbik Estate. Beautiful goose berry, lychee and citrus characters tantalise the senses with each sip. This wine has a crisp acid finish making it a perfect summer wine which can be enjoyed on its own or as an accompaniment to fish and chicken dishes. 30% of the vintage was fermented in French barriques which has enhanced mouth feel, length and created some complex characters.
Few Roos Loose
Unwooded Chardonnay 2016
This fruit was grown on one of the most carefully manicured single vineyards in the Nillumbik region and it is probably the best unwooded chardonnay we have ever made. The fruit from these 27 year old vines is luscious, rich and full of flavour. No surprise then, the wine which follows is exceptional. It demonstrate intense stone fruit characters including nectarine and apricot with a hint of honey and almond. Acidity is well balance leaving a smooth and long finish. A great accompaniment to white meats and seafood
Pinot Gris 2016
This is a gorgeous wine exhibiting fresh apple, pear and hints of savoury fennel in the background. It was picked a little later to create a Gris rather than Grigio style. The wine has a slight pink tinge resulting from overnight skin contact to add complexity and creaminess. It is a great summer wine which can be enjoyed on its own or as an accompaniment to seafood and chicken dishes. The fruit was grown on a single vineyard in the Yarra Valley which is perfectly suited to the growing requirements of this new up and coming varietal!
Wooded Chardonnay 2016
This wine has become iconic in the Nillumbik range and generally sells out very quickly. Grown in rich volcanic soils on a single vineyard in Kangaroo Ground, it is lightly crushed and pressed then fermented in super premium seasoned and 30 percent new French barriques. It has gorgeous hints of butterscotch and honey, with some fresh fruit notes of Pineapple and Passionfruit, making it utterly irresistible. It has a beautiful creamy texture which comes from barrel stirring every 2 weeks for a period of 6 months. It is a wine you will find very difficult to put down!
Pinot Noir Rosé 2016
This wine is made from the pristine Pinot Noir fruit grown on our estate and as the name suggests, its simply beautiful. The fruit was hand picked, lightly crushed and pressed, followed by a long cool ferment to preserve fruit freshness. This wine has goregous strawberry and raspberry primary fruit characters. Three months aging in seasoned barriques has produced a slight savoury finish and given the wine some texture. Designed to drink now!
Pinot Noir 2015
Domenic's Paddock is named after the Winemaker's father, who continues to maintain the vineyard at the ripe old age of 80, including pruning all 4000 vines by hand. His love and passion for viticulture and his Italian heritage in growing wine, has enabled the Pinot Noir on this exceptional block to flourish. The 2015 growing season was very dry, resulting in mildly stressed vines that produced intense flavours and yielded a low crop. This is a "big Pinot" exhibiting delicious blueberry and cherry fruit characters with beautiful background floral notes with a touch of earthy funk. These natural characters are complemented by hints of mocha and cedar, derived from over 18 months? maturation on premium seasoned French barriques.
Matteo is named after the Winemaker's son and is the namesake of the great, great, grandfather who established the family's first vineyard in central Italy, over 100 years ago.
Nebbiolo is a delicious variety that originates in the north of Italy and is very well suited to Australian conditions! This wine has beautiful upfront fruit characters of cherries and raspberries whilst the prolonged 2 year barrel aging has helped reveal violets, tar and wild herbs. Don't be deceived by the light brick red colour, it packs a huge "flavour punch" with a long lasting pallet. It has great aging potential which will soften the tannins. A wonderful accompaniment to game meat and polenta or antipasti.

Sure to please anyone looking for a big red, this wine expresses its region without ambiguity.
