2021 MDI Refosco

Mildura, VIC

A bright and fruity rendition of Refosco, one of Italy's oldest grapes




About the Wine

The MDI Refosco is a ripe and rich wine sourced from the sun-drenched vineyards of Mildura.

Refosco is renowned for making powerful wines and this wine does not disappoint. The aromas of red berries and herbs leap from the glass and the colour is almost impenetrable. The palate is rich with red fruit flavours, some liquorice spice, a touch of chocolate, and a hint of pepper. The flavour goes on and on and is helped by the medium acidity and ripe tannins, which keep everything balanced.

If you're looking for a substitute to Shiraz or Cabernet and want to try something a little different, the MDI Refosco is a really good choice at a great price.

About MDI

Mandi are all about showcasing the best of the best of Mildura's Mediterranean varieties.

Winemaker Kevin McCarthy is a bit of a wine rebel - cutting his teeth originally in the Mornington Peninsula, his winemaking philosophy became shaped by multiple trips to Europe.

He learned all there is to know about skin contact wine, directly from northern Italian winemakers themselves, and he applies all that knowledge to his wonderful fleet of great value, alternative variety Aussie wines.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
