About

As the Eden Valley embraces Australia’s trend toward drinking more medium bodied styles of red wines, we are going to see a lot more of these Italian varieties popping up from the region.

And if they are anything like the 2015 Frederick Stevenson Montepulciano, that is a very, very good thing.

This young vineyard just outside Angaston is blossoming and winemaker Steve Crawford is reaping the benefits. This release is perhaps his finest to date. It shows the variety’s subtle herbal characters and complex mash-up of sweet and savoury fruit with all the concentration and elegance that the region is famous for.

With 93 points from The Wine Front’s Mike Bennie, this is one of the classiest versions on Montepulciano we have seen this year.

What It Tastes Like

“Pomegranate, red cherry, dried herbs, powdered rock and clove scents. Like this kick off. Pops and splashes, goes plush then firm, finishes lightly chalky. Great chomp of sour-sweet fruit, licks of herbal character, pulverised granite-mineral vein. Dig it.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
