Vibrancy comes from picking the fruit early in its flavour development and throwing some whole bunches in the ferment. While crunchy and bright it also has a touch of savouriness to finish off.
About the Wine
Many forward-thinking winemakers believe that Montepulciano has a big future in Australia. This version by La Prova winemaker, Sam Scott, makes a compelling case for that claim.
Grown in the sandy loam soils of Langhorne Creek, this is one of the best value versions of the variety available on the market today. Scott's love of Italian varieties oozes through every ounce of this wine. It's flamboyantly fragrant, supple and insanely moreish.
If you are only just now being seduced by the charms of Australian grown Italian varieties, the La Prova Montepulciano is going to seal the deal.
About Scott & La Prova Wines
Sam Scott has a clear vision for his Scott and La Prova labels - Italian inspired wines done with an Australian sensibility.
Utilising his retail, winemaking and viticultural experience, he has crafted a range of interesting, charming wines from select vineyards through Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and Langhorne Creek.
They are vibrant and fruit-forward but with a savoury twist and great varietal character. Value-for-money wise, the range is up there with the best in the country.
Sam is an excellent guy and a supremely talented winemaker, as James Halliday noted, “Scott is a star in the making.”
