REAL REVIEW RATES FREEMAN NEBBIOLO 2016 IN AUSTRALIA’S TOP FIVE

FREEMAN doesnt make a habit of entering wine shows – that said, it’s pleasing to garner recognition for wines in the portfolio.

The Real Review run by wine writer Huon Hooke has rated the new release FREEMAN Nebbiolo 2016 a hefty 92 POINTS that pops it into Number 4 on his list of Top Aussie Nebbiolos.

‘Medium to full red colour with a trace of purple. The bouquet is earthy, meaty and forward, soft and mellowing, with a twist of the peppercorn grinder. The palate is medium-bodied and savoury, with a light kick of firm tannin at the end. A suggestion of raspberry jam and a sweet fruit core. Decent length. A Very smart nebb that already drinks well.’

Along with relaxation of intra-state travel FREEMAN Cellar Door has re-opened for bespoke tastings from our mostly Italian varietal inspired portfolio.

To comply with public health precautions we are limiting each visiting group size to four adults for seated tastings at the big table in our small cellar space. We apologise if this limit may cause inconvenience and are happy to offer back-back tastings if you have a larger group.

If you should be in our region and care to phone through an order before passing by, we will be very happy for you to collect pre-ordered wines from the Cellar Door.

Despite these arrangements please consider delaying a visit if you are feeling unwell, have had known contact with someone with Covid-19 or have recently returned from overseas. At FREEMAN we take both your (and our) health seriously. We have a registered Covid Safety Plan.

Please do call 0417 733715 if you would like to order wines.

When this is all over…

Remember the vineyard is 90 mins or so west of central Canberra, between Young and Harden.

Look for the Prunevale sign when driving along Kingsvale Rd…cross the defunct railway line, turn sharp right and you’ll spot the winery on the left. We look forward to welcoming you when our lives get back on track.
