Alfredo Passo Appassimento

This Passo Appassimento is sourced from premium vineyards in the Riverina. A parcel of our ‘Dried Grape Shiraz’ was used to create flavour, intensity and conventration. After fermentation, the wine was matured in French and American oak for 18 months resulting in a hand crafted wine of quality.

Winemakers Comments

Deep garnet, with crimson hue appearance. Intense aromas of black cherry and prune entwined with sweet tobacco, cedar and dark chocolate undertones. Followed by rich generous flavours of plum compote and Morello cherries, lashings of bitter chocolate, finishing with plush, silky tannins.

Wine & Food Match

Enjoy with seared lamb rump or rich, caramelised veal shanks with polenta or aged cheddar cheese.

Alfredo Passo Appassimento

We make the Alfredo Passo Appassimento as a tribute to Alfredo Nugan, the founder of Nugan Estate. Alfredo and Annelise Nugan made the decision to emigrate to Australia from Spain in 1940. At the time, they were very young, but still had a clear vision of the family’s new life in Australia. We limit the release of this wine because we make it with premium grapes. This wine is a tribute to his vision and the passion he did instill in us, his family, to pursue his ideals of outstanding quality and service.
