Casa Freschi Nebbiolo 2014

“Spends 18 months in French oak, estate grown and made in Langhorne Creek. Really¬† maxing out on that tar and roses thing. Leather, earth, rose petals/rose water, pickled cherries, gum leaf. Nice start. Fine across the palate, layering sheets of red cherry fruit, dried cranberry, pomegranate acidity and dusty tannins. Quite reserved, restrained and enjoyable as is. You know it will take some time to open up and best left up to another decade for best drinking. Really good Aus nebb.” 93+pts, $55, Drink 2017-2030, Mike Bennie, Winefront, 7 Feb 2017
