The Wines

Nugan Estate 'ALFREDO'
King Valley, Frasca’s Lane Vineyard
Sangiovese 2015

The Nugan family named this wine after their grandfather, founder and inspiration - Alfredo Nugan.

When a young Alfredo emigrated from Spain in 1940, he had a clear vision of his family’s new life in Australia. Today, his legacy sees the Nugan family established as one of Australia’s most successful agricultural enterprises.  This wine is a tribute to his vision and the passion he instilled in us, his family, to pursue his ideals of outstanding quality and service. 

Both the Sangiovese and Merlot are sourced from our Frasca’s Lane Vineyard in Victoria’s cool climate King Valley. 

Ripe aromas of cherry with hints of mocha, dark chocolate and earth followed by a savoury palate of spicy plum and raspberry with well-integrated tannins.

        "unusually powerful wine, perhaps due to diminished yield. Deep colour for the variety, with polished red and black cherry fruit to the fore, tannins present yet restrained. Should cellar well."
