Nebbiolo, Australia

Whilst it is the first to flower, Nebbiolo is the last to ripen, which means it is susceptible not only to spring frosts but also early autumn frosts. It requires good drainage and will sulk in the rain, meaning the growing regions it does best in have all their rainfall in the winter and have mostly dry spring, summer and autumn seasons. The one viticultural godsend of this fickle variety is in its thick skins, which are very disease resistant later in the season.

Found historically in Barolo and Barbaresco, with new world plantings in Australia and Okanagan Valley showing the diversity of style this variety can produce.
The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful “New World” wine-producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.
