About

Fall From Grace is a unique project initiated by wine lover/retailer/educator Gill Gordon-Smith in McLaren Vale. She is producing wines with a minimalistic, "Dao-ist" mentality: "following the currents." as Gill puts it. An interesting project on the rise. This Montepulciano spends 80 days on skins inside a 300L clay amphora before being pressed and sent to old oak for a little sleep. This gentle extraction gives the wine soft, slinky tannins and generous, sumptuous fruit whilst keeping it fresh and bouncy. This is a new look McLaren Vale red and if this release is anything to go by, McLaren Vale Montepulciano has got a big future ahead of it.

What it Tastes Like

"Ripe cherries, dark plums, olives, sniff of herbs, choc-liquorice in the evocative, rich perfume. In the palate, fleshy and bright to taste. It’s a delicious, ripe, unctuous mouthful of wine that transports a drinker to a pretty joyous place. It’s a world away from many montepulcianos I know, but it’s happy in glass and happy-making for a drinker seeking ease, freshness, vitality. Go forth." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
