Colab and Bloom Fleurieu Montepulciano 2019
It is easy to imagine a future where there is plenty of montepulciano growing around Australia. It crafts juicy, easy to drink bistro reds that have stacks of personality which are also great food wines for a whole range of dishes, from seafood through to Spanish Tapas.
This is a vibrant deep ruby in colour with lashings of blue and blackberry fruits with charcuterie, violet and spice complexity. It is then dry, fleshy and moreish with jubey fruits well matched to supple tannins and tangy acidity. This wine delivers great drinkability with a subtle, savoury European edge.
