Out of the Ordinary Eden Valley Montepulciano 2020


Montepulciano is yet another of the many Italian varieties now making a mark in vineyards around the globe and doing very nicely here. This one is from a single vineyard from Eden Valley. The team behind this wine is Saltram, one of the most famous names in winemaking from South Australia, with a history dating back more than 160 years. The colour of this wine is black/purple. The nose is a most alluring mix of spices, redcurrants, chocolate, coffee beans and warm earth – most appealing. The palate is well balanced with a lingering finish and soft tannins. An attractive wine for drinking over the next two to three years which should help to enhance the reputation of the variety in this country.
