WineFront, October 2013 (Gary Walsh) - 92 points

"...Nick Spencer tells me -

“15 year old vines , old wood, 500 litre puncheons, 40 days on skins.”

Which, assuming I had any talents besides making up funny names for people and being a smart arse, is exactly how I’d make Nebbiolo in this country.

Juicy cherries, aniseed, a bit of leather, some floral perfume – smells like Neb – but so youthful and perky!  Medium bodied, buoyant and coloured red and purple, with fine grained tannin, a slightly slippery feel and convincing length. Nice package. It needs some time to settle and build complexity, but what an impressive debut.
