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 three vintages, the "Full Monte" has arrived with the 2019 vintage. Our vines have delivered fruit with deep crimson colour. Very much true to type but with an extra degree of depth due to increased vineyard maturity. How do we describe it... fresh, bright, with medium to more full-bodied weight and a punch, crunchy tannins, berries & cherries... absolutely delicious! Monte has the ability to retain acid with strong tannin, so it can cellar for 8-10 years.
