Tar & Roses Nebbiolo
Things are getting all kinds of complex here. A Tar & Roses Nebbiolo with tar and roses characteristics because Tar & Roses was named after the hints of tar and roses you get from a Nebbiolo. Phew. It’s also impressively flexible. Serve up with food now, tuck away for a few years or sink into your favourite chair and enjoy the black liquorice sweetness, leather and olive tapenade characters, and bold tannin structure right away.
Euro-inspired, Aussie rooted in Nagambie, Victoria. If you’ve had your coffee today, you might know tar and roses are signature characteristics of Nebbiolo. Winemakers Narelle King and Don Lewis embodied this same sense of harmony in creating Spanish and Italian varietals with an inventive Aussie twist. Don’s legacy still lives on, with Tar and Roses focusing on the little things and quality fruit to make intense, distinctive and definitively gluggable wines.
