Expert Reviews

This is Italy's answer to WA's classic dry white of multiple mixed varieties. Chalmers, of course has a selection of Italian white varieties, used to advantage here. Montevecchio is not a grape variety, it is simply Italian for old mountain, a reference to the age of Heathcote's 500 million - year- old soils. Rating 90 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2013).

Winery Profile

From the meticulously tended Chalmers Heathcote vineyard comes the Montevecchio range of wines. The site is perfectly situated on the east facing slope of the Mt Camel Range, comprised of the famous red earth of the region. The twenty hectare vineyard has been planted to thirteen different varieties, predominantly Italian. The name Montevecchio translates literally as ‘old mountain’ referring to the ancient Cambrian origins of these soils. The Chalmers’ years of experience in viticulture, and their passion for Italian varieties is matched by the care and expertise of winemaker Sandro Mosele. Sandro's minimal intervention style allows the varieties and terroir to shine through in these food friendly wines.
