Limited Release Montepulciano 2018
$25.004 Awards/Critics’ Notes
This Montepulciano is an innovative varietal that we are trialling at our Cellar Door. The wine has been developed in the Brown Brothers ‘Kindergarten Winery’ – a mini winery focused on small batches of new varieties and different wine making techniques. The 2018 Montepulciano is an elegant, medium bodied style of wine that can be enjoyed now or cellared in the short-term (3 to 5 years) for further development.
