2017 Bomba Bianco A blend of Pinot bianco & Malvasia d’Istria from Alpine Valleys 2017 Bomba Rosso Nebbiolo & Shiraz from Heathcote ABOUT THE WINES The ‘Bomba Rosso’ and ‘Bomba Bianco’ are lively wines inspired by Friulian red and white blends, designed to be enjoyed at the table with good food and in the company of family and friends. ELM ‘Bomba Bianco’ is made from white varieties typical of north-eastern Italy’s Friuli region, where blended wines are popular to create food-friend dry white wines. With a delightful nose of meadow flowers, honey, cinnamon and nutmeg, the wine’s rich and complex palate is complemented by typical phenolic diversity and good length. ELM ‘Bomba Rosso’ takes an Australian approach to Friulian blends, with Heathcote Shiraz’s bright fruit concentration married with the enticing savouriness of Nebbiolo. A complex nose of red berries, blackcurrants, liquorice and dried herbs is followed by a rich and intense palate with dry and chewy tannins typical of the Nebbiolo variety. ABOUT ELM WINES Emerging winemaker Madeleine Marson has launched her first wines under the ELM label. ELM wines pays tribute to the upbringing Madeleine and her two sisters, Emily and Laura (together ELM), had in the Yarra Valley and Heathcote, where winemaking and the traditions of the Italian family table were strongly held. A long (official and unofficial) apprenticeship under the instruction of her father, Mario Marson, followed, and together they now run Vinea Marson in Heathcote. There, Madeleine got her hands on some parcels of fruit from Heathcote and the Alpine Valleys and crafted these playful takes on Italian family favourites. Free shipping with 10km Melbourne radius.
