This Montepulciano is an innovative varietal that we are trialling at our Cellar Door. The wine has been developed in the Brown Brothers ‘Kindergarten Winery’ – a mini winery focused on small batches of new varieties and different wine making techniques. The 2017 Montepulciano is an elegant, medium bodied style of wine that can be enjoyed now or cellared in the short-term (3 to 5 years) for further development.
Recommended food pairings: A wide array of traditional Italian dishes such as tomato-based pastas and spicy pizza. Or why not try it with smoked lamb cutlets and roasted Mediterranean vegetables. It is also a fantastic combination with lighter washed rind cheeses.
Growing Conditions: The Montepulciano grapes used to make this wine were grown at our own Heathcote vineyard in Central Victoria. The fruit was harvested in early May at a baumé level of 13.8.
Winemaker: Cate Looney
Winemaking notes: To retain the fresh aromatics of the Montepulciano the wine was stored in stainless steal only. It was bottled with an alcohol of 13.5%, a pH of 3.53 and an acid level of 6.2 g/L.
