Words from our Winemaker Peter Leske...
Montepulciano originates from central Italy and it is very much a "modern Mediterranean" red style produced on our stony Western Ridge soils.
Settling into balance after a couple of vintages, the "Full Monte" has arrived with the 2018 vintage.
With an extra year of maturity, our vines have delivered fruit just slightly darker in colour and fruit spectrum than in their infancy. Very much true to type but with an extra degree of depth due to increased vineyard maturity.
How do we describe it... fresh with bright crimson colour, medium weight with a punch, crunchy tannins, berries & cherries... absolutely delicious!
