Domenica Beechworth Nebbiolo Rose 2022
ON THE 2021 : Nebbiolo is a wonderful grape variety for rosato, and I often wish more producers from Piedmont would make one, though I ask and they kind of say, to paraphrase “Nebbiolo is for red wine, we have white wine for drinking if you want something lighter or cooler (you idiot). Such balance, wonderful fine powdery texture, a little floral and aniseed perfume, red cherry and blood orange, fresh acidity but softness in the mouth, with a long faintly spicy finish. This is outstanding. Yum.’ 95 Points Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

Domenica sits 460m above sea level atop the granite ridge sweeping away to the south west of Beechworth. The wines are vividly reflective of their origin, a gripping mineral texture encasing the mature vine vitality of the varietals chosen to express it.
Winemaking is traditional. Taste is more important than numbers. The yeasts comes from the site, not a packet. Pressings, solids and lees all play their part completing the picture. The wines are carefully maintained in oak bariques before being bottled unfiltered.
Winemaker Peter Graham cut his teeth at nearby Giaconda, where he worked as assistant winemaker for thirteen years. During the early part of this time he completed a degree in wine science by correspondence through Charles Sturt University. - Winery Note
