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.’
