Named after the Yarra Valley diva Dame Nellie Melba, whose performances in the opera Lucia Di Lammermoor made her famous in the 1860’s when cuttings for these wines were first planted. Oak and caramel fill the nose and a full palate of fruit, molasses and caramel. Medium bodied with a disappointing finish for the age of the vines it comes from. Must try other years.

Dark red in color with a nose of caramel and earth, almost dusty. A mouthful of burnt carmel and dust with a finish that coats your mouth with fur. A weird taste indeed.Negroamaro means black bitter and it is just that. Probably an acquired taste.
