2019 Commune of Buttons 'Basketolo' Nebbiolo

Adelaide Hills, South Australia

An homage to the Piemonte Nebbiolo where Jasper and cellar hand Duncan Reid spent last vintage. Three weeks fermentation in a Jarrah fermenter, then racked to stainless steel tank and allowed to go through malolactic fermentation. After 18th months of elevage it was bottled and allowed to rest in bottle for a year. The wine has the characteristic red fruits of Nebbiolo, ripe cherries, cardamom and currants, with long ashy tannins. It's still very fresh but accessible and highly enjoyable, particularly on the 3rd and 4th day of opening. Our favourites of this year.

2019 Commune of Buttons 'Basketolo' Nebbiolo
About the maker

Another Basket Range powerful duo, Jasper and Sophie Button are siblings making beautiful wine from organic grapes.

Jasper and Sophie Button are a brother and sister team, making wine from their family vineyard in the Basket Range sub-region of the Adelaide Hills. Jasper grew up in the Basket Range region in the Adelaide Hills and helped to plant twelve acres of vines on the family farm when he was just 10 years of age. The grapes were originally farmed to sell to wineries, but after struggling in later years to find the right wineries to buy them, the Buttons decided to start marking wine under their own label. The grapes are grown organically by their mum, they are cool climate grapes like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. All the wines are made with minimal intervention and a lot of love, inspired by the surrounding community of frivolous and passionate winemakers.
