Steenberg Nebbiolo 2014

Neato.

The Nebbiolo from Constantia property Steenberg started out as not much more than a curiosity but recent vintages have gained in stature and the 2014 is perhaps the best yet.

Matured for 16 months in a combination of 225- and 500-litre barrels, 9% new, the wine is complex and balanced. On the nose, red fruit, roses and crushed herbs plus a hint of vanilla and spice.  The palate is light bodied yet intensely flavoured with a definite tomato cocktail quality on the finish. Good freshness and fine tannins. Price: R235 a bottle.

#WinemagRating: 92/100.
