Since 2002, Justin and Joyce have spent many a day monitoring, tending and nurturing the sometimes triffid like nature of Nebbiolo vines in the vineyards of the Adelaide Hills, Barolo and the Pyrenees in Victoria. Nebbiolo is known as the King of Grapes and reining in its noble arrogance has been a passion and obsession for many years leading to the first wine by Dhiaga.
The grapes for this wine were hand-picked and destemmed with a small portion retained as whole bunches. The wine was fermented in an open vat and regularly hand plunged. After ferment the tank was sealed and the wine was left on skins for 60 days before basket pressing. It was then matured in old oak barrels for 12 months. The wine was then carefully racking and gently filtered.
