Pat Underwood is among the crop of young and exciting producers coming out of Australia. If you're a local Melbournian, chances are you’ve crossed paths as he was a long-time team member of one of the most respected Melbourne wine teams at City Wine Shop. Recently, Pat made the switch into production (as many sommeliers seem to be doing). In 2014, he co-founded Castlemaine’s Boomtown Winemakers Co-operative with friends Jarad Curwood and Tim Sproal, before going on and establishing his own label - Little Reddie, the following year.
The fruit for this wine is sourced from the older ‘C Block’ Nebbiolo at Willoughby Bridge which was originally planted in 1998 on slightly richer soils further down the hill in Colbinabbin. An early harvest of juice fermented over late harvested skins with 24 days maceration, 12 months in stainless steel tanks followed by a further 12 months in puncheons. Awesome stuff!
