Overview

From the meticulously tended Chalmers Heathcote Vineyard comes the Montevecchio range of wines. The range is inspired by the everyday drinking wines of Italy which are generally fresh and vibrant - often regional field blends - and designed to be enjoyed in their youth, while still showing structure and texture.

This 2012 Bianco is made from Vermentino, Fiano, and a small percentage of Moscato Giallo.

Expert Reviews

The white wine co-fermented field blend of Italian varieties, sister to Montevecchio Rosso. This certainly has presence and depth, but is no match for the quality of Rosso. Rosso ends up vibrantly masculine, this ends up somewhat stodgily (I'm not going to extend the description into gender). James Halliday, Rating 87, 25th July 2014

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.
