Top 12 non-Italian Nebbiolos

6. Blank Bottle Raw, Rawsonville, Western Cape, South Africa

Maverick South African winemaker Pieter Walser produces a staggering range of wines – upwards of 30 at any one time – from grapes sourced from across South Africa.

Walser loves to find (for South Africa) unusual plantings – his bottlings include Fernao Pires, Cabernet Franc, Clairette Blanche and Verdelho, among many others.

He also produces a snappily named Orbitofrontal Cortex 2015 – a wine blended according to statistical analysis of Walser’s subconscious using an EEG monitor, as you do.

The grapes for his Raw Nebbiolo 2013 were sourced from Goudini, Rawsonville in the Breede River Valley of the Western Cape. The wine has spent two years maturing in steel tank and used barrels, then a further 12 months in bottle.

  1. Can’t believe you missed L.A Cetto Private Reserve Nebbiolo from Baja California, Mexico. One of the first new world nebbiolos and in our view one of the best. Authentic and delicious.

  2. Leonardo Ricardez says:

    Agree with the LA Cetto comment. Additionaly it is very affordable, and has a big following in Mexico.
