Winery Tasting Notes

Dark and inky when poured this big juicy state from a terrific wine growing region where you can expect wines, especially Shiraz to exceed expectations!

A bold wine that over delivers right from the get go. Brilliant clear aromatics of blackberry and spice compete alongside dark red cherries and hints of liquorice and some oak all linger longer than you would expect. The first sip brings a glorius mouth fill of superb Shiraz. Layers of dense cassis fruit mingle and adjourn in the palate for seemingly ages as you are being knocked over with the glorius cool climate white papper that hums alongside wonderful acid keeping the whole thing thundering along and you hoping you've got another bottle in the cellar.

Mt. Monster

Family owned - Estate grown - Hand crafted wines

Since 1851, five generations of the Bryson family have been involved in agriculture and the unique and fertile land of South Australia.

At Mt. Monster, it is our sole objective to produce the best wines possible from our unique vineyard site. Located in the Padthaway valley which is comprised of rich Terra Rosa soils our estate vineyard benefits from excellent sun exposure producing grapes of optimum flavour, colour and tannin development. The warm summer days are moderated each evening by coastal winds that cool the vines and result in a longer ripening period. This extended period allows for the grape tannins and seed to fully ripen prior to being harvested, thus creating wines that are rich and supple on the palate.

We concentrate our energies and skills on producing the classical wines that are most recognised and suited to the region’s viticulture:

Shiraz

Cabernet Sauvignon

Chardonnay

Sauvignon Blanc

The wines from Mt. Monster express full varietal flavours, take advantage of the Padthaway’s maritime climate with its long slow ripening season and unique soils. We use traditional winemaking methods, complemented by modern winemaking technology with minimal processing to ensure the purity, integrity, texture and flavour from our vineyard.

Our pursuit of great wine can also be seen in the meticulous management of our vineyard. We strive for low crop yields and small grape bunches of intense flavour, and whilst we employ the latest technology in the vineyard to help us achieve vine balance and reduced vigour, we harvest when the fruit reaches full flavour development.
