Out of Step Wine Co. Malakoff Estate Nebbiolo 2015

Some cracking wines come off this dirt. Would love to visit one day.

Expressly expressive: tobacco, Black cherry, grilled nuts, balsamic.

It just has presence: it's chewy, thick, has that Nebbiolo tarry presence with flecks of licorice. Savoury to its dense, dark core; the tannin is firm, deliciously moreish. 

Paired this with a med-rare beef roast and it just lapped up the protein. Exemplar. 94 

Tasted on: Sunday 8th January, a Fruit to Root day
