Glenwillow Vineyard Nebbiolo 2014
Grower producers Peter and Cherryl Fyffe established Glenwillow Vineyard on the Sandon-Yandoit Rd at Yandoit Creek in the cooler southern fringe of the Bendigo region in Central Victoria.
The Yandoit Valley is situated between historical Castlemaine and cosmopolitan Daylesford, about 150km north of Melbourne, Australia.
The Yandoit area is steeped in history of the early settlers and the goldrush era. Gold was first discovered in this area within a few hundred metres from the vineyard in the 1850’s.
The vineyard is planted on an elevated, north-facing, aspect of rich volcanic and clay loam with quartz and buckshot gravel.
The 3 hectare vineyard was planted in the late 90s to Shiraz (from Wynns Michael vineyard), Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebbiolo and Barbera.
The vineyard is dry grown, minimum fertiliser/sprays are used with biodiversity and natural environmental controls.
"A medium-bodied Italian style wine. The palate is long and rich with subtle floral and savoury flavours and a hint of red cherry. There are fine grained tannins and a great acid structure. This wine drinks best with Mediterranean style food, particularly pizza, pasta & wild game."-- Peter Fyffe, Winemaker
