DOMENICA

After 13 years making wine at his uncles domain, Giaconda, Peter Graham decided to set up his own winery. Domenica sits 460m above sea level atop the granite ridge sweeping away to the south west of Beechworth. The wines are vividly reflective of their origin, a gripping mineral texture encasing the mature vine vitality of the varietals chose to express it. Winemaking is traditional. Taste is more important than numbers. The yeasts come from the site, not a packet. Pressings, solids and lees all play their part completing the picture. The wines are carefully maintained in oak barriques before being bottled unfiltered.

2023 Domenica Chardonnay
‘A very fine chardonnay, without quite the precision, detail and tension that I recall from other years. Stone fruit, flint, lanolin, porcini and that regional tattoo of glazed quince. Quinine bitterness at the finale. Mid-weighted and nicely nervous in the mouth, while suitably open-knit enough to breach already. Fine. Drink or hold. Screw cap.’

2021 Domenica Nebbiolo
‘Australia does a fine job with nebbiolo. Admittedly, across a limited number of hands. But each time I am in the Piedmont, there are plenty of Aussies being thrown up as worthy comparative cards. Here, one of them. A pallid mid-ruby. Lifted scents of briar, sandalwood, campfire, beef bouillon, pomelo and orange peel, with a sluice of the sourest cherry, all fiery pucker and brim. Undoubtedly, among the finest nebbiolo outside of the Langhe, although there is something here more akin to Gattinara, so etched are the tannins and perky the freshness. A standout. Scored in a regional context. Drink or hold. Screw cap.’

2021 Domenica Shiraz
‘Fine shiraz in these parts is almost an inevitability given diurnal shifts, granite soils and largely, impressive viticulture. Great terroir. Lifted aromas of mace, violets, cloves, black olives, blueberries and pepper grind. A marinade of steak in the mix. This is a stunning shiraz, mid-weighted, nicely furled and offering real propulsion across the mouth, given the freshness and pliant tannic fiber. Exceptional wine. Drink or hold.’
