The Alfredo Passo Apassimento
Deep Garnet, with a 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 cherry, lashings of bitter chocolate, finishing with plush, silky tannins.
The Alfredo Passo Apassimento Winemaking
We make the Alfredo Passo Apassimento 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.
We source the grapes for this Passo Appassimento from premium vineyards in the Riverina. Not too far from the winery. We use a parcel of our ‘Dried Grape Shiraz’ to create flavour, as well as intensity and concentration. After fermentation, we mature the wine in French and American oak for 18 months. This results in a beautiful wine which the winemaking team handcraft to perfection and quality.
