Tar & Roses home is in Nagambie Central Victoria and produces wines inspired by classic varietals from the Mediterranean and was named after the signature characteristics of Nebbiolo. The name also ties back to the winemaking team behind the venture, the legendary Don Lewis and his winemaking partner Narelle King. Following the passing of Don in 2017 this represents the final vintage of his great career with Narelle now carrying on the Tar & Roses tradition in 2018 and beyond.
Sourced from four main vineyards; one in the King Valley, one in Sutton Grange, the Stratford Vineyard just north of Nagambie as well as the Mitchelton vineyard. The higher altitude of the first two vineyards provide cooler conditions, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly, ideal for the development of the delicious classic fresh peach and pear flavours, while the warmer region brings out the more tropical aromas of the flavour spectrum.
Pale ballet slipper pink in colour. Nashi pears and white peach on the nose with hints of guava, floral blossom and citrus notes of mandarin. The palate is generous with abundant fruit sweetness of mandarins and pears, classic pinot grigio viscosity, well balanced with fine acidity, long and lingering.
