Ben Haines 2015 Rendition Nebbiolo (Pyrenees)

Artisanal producer Haines makes a decent go at a variety notoriously fussy about growing outside its native Piedmont. From a quality vineyard in the Pyrenees, west of Melbourne, this rose-petal-hued Neb spends a whopping 383 days on skins. The nose is a bit volatile, with lifted aromas of watermelon, strawberry cordial, stalks, florals, savory, mushroomy funk and a slight sanguine quality. The palate walks a varietally typical tightrope of lightness and power—the plump bright fruit gripped firmly by herbal tannins. Already showing some bottle age, chill down slightly and drink up.
