Montepulciano D'Adelaide

Whilst still a travelling consultant winemaker, on his list of favourite wine regions to visit and work was central and southern Italy. It was there that his love of Montepulciano began, and those memories have inspired him to make this Aussie version from fruit grown in the Adelaide Hills.

The Montepulciano fruit has been sourced from two different vineyards in the Adelaide region. Firstly, the ‘Amadio’ vineyard, located between Kersbrook and Williamstown in the Adelaide Hills. The vineyard sits at 300m altitude, is relatively low vigour and on grey-brown loam. Secondly, the ‘Lanark’ vineyard, located in Blewitt Springs. The vineyard faces east, and is a cooler site than others in McLaren Vale, leading to a later harvest. The resulting wine has good natural acidity and deep colour – all features that make it perfect as a serious dry red.
