The 2012 vintage was one of the most condensed seen in McLaren Vale with crushing completed by the end of March compared with the middle of April in 2011.

The McLaren Vale vintage was light in crop, but of excellent quality, one of the best. Harvest weather conditions during February and March saw cool nights but warm days ideal for ripening.

Montepulciano is a new variety to Australia and originates from the Abruzzi region of central Italy. It's behaviour viticulturally here in McLaren Vale is excellent and appears to thrive in our Mediterranean style climate.

This wine was fermented using traditional plunging techniques in open fermenters followed by an extended maceration on skins. The wine was aged in a combination of older French and American oakpuncheons and hogsheads for 12 months

Expert Reviews

A new arrival in McLaren Vale that appears to be suited to the region; the red and black fruit flavours have a crisp, fresh finish that takes the wine out of the usual texture of montepulciano. Rating 90 - Drink by 2016, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (DEC/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes


The colour is dense, deep and vibrant


The aromas amazingly perfumed in a symphony of oranges, sautéed dark fruits with touches of nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon and vanilla.


The palate is full bodied with excellent structure surrounding perfumed dense black fruits. The tannin, acid and fruit combine well creating secondary characters that build and last for ever!
