Architects of Wine is a small batch winery that was founded in 2013 by an architect turned project manager turned winemaker. What started as a simple backyard hobby quickly turned into an obsession, and the team at Architects of Wine has been creating minimal intervention, handcrafted wines ever since. The philosophy at Architects of Wine is simple: create interesting and textural wines with restraint, while maintaining transparent expressions of the vineyard, vintage and terroir. To achieve this ideal, each wine is carefully crafted and considered with a 'less is more' mantra and a hands-off style of winemaking. The winery has a strong focus on Italian varieties and primarily sources fruit from the Adelaide Hills, although they occasionally venture out to other wine regions in South Australia depending on where the vintage takes them. The team at Architects of Wine is committed to sourcing fruit only from sustainably farmed vineyards, and all their wines are fermented with native yeasts from their respective vineyards. Their wines are unfined, unfiltered and contain no additions with the exception of a small dose of SO2 prior to bottling in some wines. This dedication to minimal intervention winemaking allows the true character of the grapes to shine through in each bottle. Architects of Wine is a winery that is passionate about creating small batch, handcrafted wines that showcase the unique terroir of each vineyard. With a focus on Italian varieties and a commitment to minimal intervention winemaking, their wines are sure to impress any wine lover looking for something unique and interesting.

Australian Nebbiolo is a relatively new addition to the Australian wine scene, but it is quickly gaining popularity. This grape variety is most famously known for its production regions of Barolo and Barbaresco in Piedmont, Italy. However, Australian winemakers are now producing their own unique take on Nebbiolo, showcasing the grape's versatility and ability to express different terroirs. With a focus on minimal intervention winemaking and careful consideration of each vineyard's unique characteristics, Australian Nebbiolo is becoming increasingly distinctive and sought after.

The Architects of Wine Nebbiolo Normale 2021 is a lacey and fragrant wine that showcases a floral and elegant nose with pronounced notes of rose, mint and vibrant red berries. On the palate, fine, cool red fruit is matched with hints of spice and a good lick of tannin. This Nebbiolo is a standout from the Hills, with each vintage becoming more distinctive than the last. Due to its clone, this wine is on the lighter side, but it still packs a punch in terms of flavor and complexity. The winemaking process involved wild fermentation, with 100% destemmed grapes and a 36-day maceration. The wine was then aged for 13 months in neutral French oak, allowing it to develop its full flavor profile and complexity. The Architects of Wine Nebbiolo Normale 2021 is a delightful wine that is sure to impress any Nebbiolo lover. Its floral and elegant nose, combined with fine, cool red fruit on the palate, make it a great choice for pairing with a variety of dishes.
