2019 Montepulciano - Single Vineyard - 3 x Bottle Case
3 x 750mL CASE
Our wines are handcrafted with minimal intervention as to truly reflect the purist expression of vineyard, vintage and variety. From the vineyard to the bottle, only the gentlest techniques are utilised; harvest by hand, whole berry de-stemming, open-vat temperature controlled fermentation, gentle basket-pressing and no finning or filtration prior to bottling.
The 2019 season faced many a challenge, but responded with grace; producing intense, aromatic high quality fruit. A bout of frost, and a hailstorm shortly after bud burst, followed by a long dry spell kept growers on their toes year round. Extreme temperatures in February and March caused early ripening and vintage was done & dusted in a flash. Overall 2019 is a high-quality vintage with reduced yields making these wines an even more exciting prospect.
The aroma shows hints of cherry, black pepper, violets and earthy notes. The smooth juicy palate is a mix of sweet spice and moorish plum fruit flavours with fine tannins and balanced natural acidity that invite you back for another taste.
