Nugan Estate Alfredo Appassimento Shiraz 2018

SKU
NUAS201810 UCAU
This Passo Appassimento is sourced from premium vineyards in the Riverina. A parcel of our ‘Dried Grape Shiraz’ was used to create flavour, intensity and concentration. After fermentation, the wine was matured in French and American oak for 18 months resulting in a handcrafted wine of quality. Several years in bottle have softened and rounded the wine making it even more complex.

    "(2016) Generous fruit; tick. Balance and complexity; tick. Value for money; big tick. Big, round and plummy due to the Amarone-esque method of production, but for all that the time in bottle has softened it, delivering a delicious, round and incredibly enjoyable red."

Locations

Australia

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.

Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.

South Australia

If you like Australian wine, then you probably like South Australia wine. The rich reds produced there put Australia on the wine-making map of the world. With over 40% of the country's vineyards, South Australia can rightfully call itself the wine state.

Wines are produced in several regions throughout the state, though many are naturally grouped together, like Barossa and Eden Valleys, only 15 minutes apart. They include such regions as Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Eden Valley, Coonawarra, Adelaide Hills, Kangaroo Island, Langhorne Creek, The Limestone Coast, McLaren Vale and Wrattonbully to name but a few!

Barossa Valley boasts some of the oldest vines in Australia dating back to 1843 and produces some of the world's finest Shiraz, whilst the 'terra rossa' soils of Coonawarra is most suited to producing outstanding Cabernet Sauvignons. If you're a fan of Riesling, Clare Valley is a great place to explore and for a Maritime climate not dissimilar to parts of the Italian coastline, seek out the wines from McLaren Vale.

Riverland

The Riverland is a literal giant within the Australian wine industry.

As the largest wine producing region in Australia, it is located a little over two hours north-east of Adelaide and stretches west along the Murray River from Paringa to Blanchetown

Long sunny days, cool temperate nights, and low annual rainfall give rise to a continental style climate of warm summers and mild winters. The endless sunshine of long summer days allows fruit to ripen to its fullest and low humidity means the risk of disease and rot is almost zero. It is the perfect place for growing wine.

With European immigrant influences dating back to the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, the Riverland is home to plantings of some 85 different wine grape varieties. These plantings consist of both traditional varietals, which make up 66% of the total grapes grown in the region, and many alternative varieties that make up the rest and are particularly well suited to the Riverland region. Now more than 30 new wave varieties are produced at a commercial scale.
