From the meticulously tended Chalmers Heathcote Vineyard comes the Montevecchio range of wines. The twenty hectare vineyard is planted to more than 10 different Italian varieties and is perfectly situated on the east facing slope of the Mt Camel Range on the famous red earth of the region. The name Montevecchio translates literally as 'old mountain' referring to the ancient Cambrian origins of these soils.
- VIC - Heathcote
A blend of approximately 25% each of sanigovese, nero d'Avola, negroamaro and lagrein. Good hue; a lively, predominantly red-fruited wine with good balance to its medium-bodied palate; the spicy/savoury/fluffy tannins are a plus. James Halliday, Rating 91, 27th July 2015
Winery Tasting Notes
Vibrant raspberry and purple fruits are balanced perfectly with a savoury meatiness and refreshing acidity.
This medium-bodied wine has plenty of supple fruit, soft tannins and is designed to be enjoyed in its youth.
