View Tasting Notes

A sexy, svelte interpretation of flamboyant Montepulciano.

A sensual, yet exurberant wine. This Montepulciano, an Australian expression of this southern Italian varietal, is teasingly textured, whilst bursting with ‘Shirazamatazz’ flavour.

Soil
VINEYARD: Kersbrook in the northern Adelaide Hills - 340m above sea level on complex sandy clay loams over shale.

Vintage
VINTAGE 2018: Good winter rainfall around 10% higher than average. A dry spring combined with a warmer than average October and November meant the vine canopies grew quickly, and led to a good flowering and set. January and February were warm and dry, with a series of heat events slowing down the pace of ripening. Similar to 2017, March signalled the start of an endless summer that lasted through into April. These perfect ripening conditions allowed us to pick all our blocks at the optimum point, and the resulting wines look the business. 2018 may rank with the best of the decade.
Cellaring
Drink up, but also a 8-10 year proposition.
