About This Wine:
It dates all the way back to 1940, when Alfredo Nugan fled all of the turmoil in Europe and migrated from Spain to Australia. He picked exactly the right spot to settle, because the Big Rivers area has ultimately become a hub of Down Under winemaking.
Big Rivers is situated within the larger Riverina wine region, southwest of Sydney and north of Melbourne. There, the climatic conditions and the use of modern drip irrigation enable the growers to produce premium-quality grapes with great consistency.
The 2018 Wollombi Pass Shiraz is a product of the Big Rivers area, and the vintner crafted it to be a reflection of both the land and the vintage. It showcases the earthy quality of the grape variety along with other notes from the terroir, resulting in a complex and beguiling wine.
