Jared Dixon is a guy you want to keep your eye on. He's producing the most interesting wines in New South Wales right now. Jared's wines go under the label of Jilly where he sources fruit from the district around Armidale known as New England. Nebbiolo is his thing, but don't for a second pass on the opportunity to try his other wines - they're exciting, always intersting and so drinkable by anyone's standards.
