GOLD MEDAL - Hawke's Bay A&P Bayleys Wine Awards

Montepulciano is an Italian grape variety grown in the Abruzzi region of Central Italy. This block of Montepulciano grape vines have adapted remarkably well to the Gimblett Gravels site and the resulting wines have produced myriad Gold medals and Trophy’s to prove it!

Cherries, cranberries and dark chocolate with a touch of cedar are evident on the nose whilst the palate is intense and fruit driven. Bold, bright, boysenberries interplay with cedar and spice coming from the fine grained French oak. Currently delicious, but would easily cellar well into the 2020’s. But who can wait that long? … Seriously?
