Distinctly floral, layered with red fruit and a slight gamey twist. Quite rich palate with a long, fine tannic finish. Early days yet as these wines tend to show themselves over a long time.
Are you kidding, Nebb’s are like food mecca for dishes involving game and savoury, umami rich food. Slow cooked hare, truffle infused pasta, roasted cauliflower with a black garlic sauce. Wild mushroom risotto with a splash of the wine in the rice. Think rustic, full flavoured gamey dishes and partner up with a Nebb.
