90pointsAlpha Box & Dice 2016 Fog Nebbiolo (Adelaide Hills)

Nebbiolo is notoriously grouchy about being planted outside its native Piedmont. This Adelaide Hills version doesn't reach the heights capable of Neb in its native home, but there's varietal character and heaps of charm about it, anyway. A dried rose petal hue, the nose is aromatic if a little volatile and soapy. Intense but pretty notes of maraschino cherry, rose water, balsamic and a hint of cocktail bitters lead to a palate that is stalky and sappy, if a touch bitter, with lifted acidity and silky fruit. Drink now. Christina Pickard
