Born & Raised - Nebbiolo – Heathcote Victoria
If you love good Pinot Noir, you’ll enjoy this. Nebbiolo could be Pinot’s bigger, sometimes more brutish sibling. It’s Pinot with, well balls.
This our second release Heathcote Nebbiolo is light in style yet retains the hallmarks of Nebbiolo, firm fine tannins, high acidity with a dark core of inky black fruits and tar leading to the morello cherry, violet, and rose like perfume.
Born & Raised Wines brings you the finest in small batch, alternative Australian wine styles.
They source fruit from Heathcote and surrounds to produce unique examples of Nebbiolo, Tempranillo, Sangiovese and other highly drinkable grape derived beverages.
I blame my father. 35 years ago he went to a wine tasting evening class, there was not enough people to hold the course, so he and a few others started their own. They’ve been tasting wine every Wednesday since.
That was what I was born into, a family that pretty much centered around the table. Or to be precise the fridge. Food and wine were all part of the experience. Very little has changed.
Having traveled the world and studied winemaking, viticulture and wine business in 2012, I decided to get out from behind the corporate desk and continue with the fun part, winemaking and sharing the results with others. That’s me, David Messum – Winemaker/Owner/Purveyor of Wines from the Other Side.
Born & Raised is based on the simple premise that good things should be shared, you don’t need to follow the herd and that it’s ok to be different. Born & Raised Wines embodies the things I love about wine so much, diversity, great people, sociability and above all having a good time.
We’re only here for a short time, better make it count and drink some good booze along the way.
