Powerful and rich, with ripe flavours of dark fruit and spice.
Our Family Reserve Montepulciano 2019 is concentrated and complex – probably the most exciting Montepulciano we’ve produced to date!
The Montepulciano grape variety originates from Central Italy. Try it with an Italian antipasto platter or delicious New Zealand game.
In exceptional years we carefully select wines for our Family Reserve label. We feel they just have that extra dimension and totally deserve a black label. We hope you’ll enjoy!
Gold Medal, 95/100 Bob Campbell MW for The Real Review
Intense, deep, youthful Montepulciano with dark berry, cassis, liquorice, spice and nutty oak flavours. Very impressive vibrant wine with a backbone of ripe tannins and juicy acidity. Great now but should develop well with bottle age. 4 Sept 2020
4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper
Dark and purple-flushed, it is robust and sweet-fruited, with concentrated plum and spice flavours, woven with fresh acidity, supple tannins, and good cellaring potential.
