SubRosa Pyrenees Nebbiolo 2016


Mike Bennie, The Winefront 94 points: “From the notable Malakoff vineyard, plundered regularly by nebbiolo-enthused winemakers around the traps. Winemaker Adam Louder is his own man, but is now in charge of Mount Langi, but that’s by-the-by as this, his family project, is distinct, and, distinguished in its own right. Style-wise it reminds me a bit of Olek Bondonio’s wines of Barbaresco. It’s a vibrant, pure-feeling expression, loaded with perfume, lashed with savoury, iron-filing and graphite-tannins, bright in fruit flavour, dusted with attractive spice. There’s also a distinct vibrancy here, a cheery, cherry-kissed feel that’s easy for earlier access, despite there being cool, amaro-like acidity and a sheath of building tannin. It drives assertively then lingers with sappy fruit and minerally feel. It’s such a pleasure. It’s great.”

Aussie expats, Adam Louder and Nancy Panter, met under the Californian sun and got to know each other over a decent glass of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
Adam was an up and coming winemaker with a thirst for knowledge. Nancy was a corporate communications whizz, talented at creating great experiences that delighted people.
In 2015, after 19 years working in vineyards and wineries over 28 harvests in five regions and three continents, Adam launched SubRosa with Nancy in his ruggedly beautiful home region, the Grampians, in Victoria.
“sub rosa” (sub rose-a) adv Lit in secret.
[Latin, literally: under the rose; in ancient times a rose was hung over a table as a mark of secrecy]
Adam is passionate about the high quality grapes grown in his home region and the neighbouring Pyrenees area. Being a local, he has great relationships with the growers allowing him to source the best quality fruit he can get his hands on.
