Nebbiolo Rosato 2018
Salmon pink, savoury and super sexy, the Nebbiolo grape makes lip-smacking Rosé for grown-ups.
This beautiful bottle is printed with fine, filigreed artwork representing the Queen of the Ancient Roman Gods, Juno – goddess of Heaven, Matrimony and Women and was the daughter of the all-powerful Saturn, God of Harvest.
An image of Saturn appears on Longview’s Nebbiolo bottle and is the namesake of the Saturno family, owners of Longview Vineyard.

Vibrant salmon pink in colour with delicate notes of orange peel, ripe peach and musk aromas. The palate bursts with maraschino cherries and raspberries, then finishes with savoury, refreshing acidity. Lingering and dry; unmistakably Nebbiolo!
Spring rainfall was relatively below average which helped disease control and provided ideal conditions for the flowering period. Dry conditions though early summer helped us control vine vigour resulting in balanced canopies. From veraison through to harvest, the weather was ideal with minimal moisture and cool nights resulting in exceptional fruit flavour development and acid retention. The fruit was hand harvested on the 15th of March, during the coolest part of the day and delivered to the winery immediately to preserve fruit flavour.

93 Points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review – “Light salmon-pink hue with a savoury, slightly dried=herby aroma, lightly grassy and lemony. The palate is soft and fruity, juicy and supple, with a nice dry, savoury finish and aftertaste. A firm, dry, savoury style of rosé with serious styling and a cleansing finish. I could drink plenty of this.”
