Steenberg Nebbiolo 2016

Steenberg Nebbiolo 2016

On appearance, this wine is slightly brick red with a clear yet bright hue. The bouquet displays notes of savoury strawberry compote, aniseed and truffle; along with notes of leather and red cherry. The wine displays the natural tart acidity and grippy tannins of Nebbiolo, accompanied with hints of sour cherry, raspberry and tobacco leaf. The wine shows beautiful fruit and floral characters in youth.
