- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
The Montepulciano is Alex Russell's signature wine. He has made one of the country's best value and most consistent versions of the variety for a few years now. The 2016 is a loveable and approachable style of Montepulciano, showing rich, juicy fruit characters and some lovely exotic spice. You will have to look hard to find a better value version of this variety anywhere in the country.
What it Tastes Like
Rich black fruit, blueberry, licorice and pepper. There's a hint of grilled meat on the nose and some Chinese five spice too. It's a flood of sweet fruit flavour, a very pure version of the variety. Delicious drinking and so easy to reach for any night of the week.
Silver Medal - 2015 Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show
You could say this is Alex Russell's signature wine, with three gold, two silver and two bronze awarded since 2010 at the Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show. This variety originates from Montepulciano, Italy, where the climate mirrors that of the Riverland, SA, the place these little fellers were grown. This 2015 drop exhibits qualities of a classic Monty, fruity, purply and delizioso! TASTING NOTES: Bright purple red with typical Monty aromatics including red to dark fruits, violets and mulberry. Fruit driven with minimal oak contact allows the fruit to express in full. Suited to pastas, cured meats and cheese.
