The Story:  What does one buy for a husband of almost twenty years who,
dare I say it, buys for himself whatever he wants!

Late in vintage 2013 the phone rang, it was Robert John from the Malakoff
Vineyard who had heard about our penchant for unusual varieties enquiring as to
whether we wanted any Viognier.  We had made a pact ‘no small batches’ and
so after declining the offer I was somehow possessed to ask whether he had any
Nebbiolo.  It was Rays birthday in May and what better present. A great
Nebbiolo rivals Pinot Noir in its elusiveness and Ray loves nothing more than a
challenge.  Two tonne of Nebbiolo arrived, difficult to wrap, but has given
Ray many hours of fun, an excuse to spend a fortune on B**olo and will provide
much pleasure for years to come.

It worked again in 2014 and when you are onto a good idea…

94 points, Halliday 2019 Wine Companion
“Sweeter and easier to approach in
its youth than the '14, this is still prime time nebbiolo. Red cherry, violet
floral notes, autumnal forest floor and darker berry allusions, too. The spine
of tannins is not to be taken lightly, but the exuberance of taming fruit makes
them easier to breach. Enjoy this now and across the next decade. Sappy and
energetic. Delicious!”
