Vineyard 28

Vineyard 28

The intention is to be known for alternative varieties, particularly those with Italian origins. The flagship wines are arneis and nebbiolo. Traditional vineyard practices, organic fertilisers and mulch are generally adopted. The cellar door is halfway between Mandurah and Bunbury, well-known for the red cloud kelpie Jasper who greets everyone and for the array of quilts and art for sale created by local artisans.

Vineyard 28 arneis 2016 ($22)

Fragrant and beautifully aromatic variety that these are doing really well. I think this is the best one they have released. There is an intensity and fruit flavour that probably reflects the mature vines and a good year. Juicy dry finish with a crisp acidity sustaining the spicy pear and citrus characters.
SCORE 92/100 CELLAR 3 Years

Vineyard 28 nebbiolo 2015 ($22)

This can be a tricky variety to manage in the vineyard and the winery, yet these guys have pretty much nailed it. In particular, the tannins are well managed. The palate has a beautiful medium-bodied dry savouriness with spices and light raspberry cherry characters. Dry finish is perfect for food.
SCORE 92/100 CELLAR 4 years
