The Story

Situated at over 500 metres and with soils of ancient red clay loam of volcanic origin, the Montrose vineyards deliver distinctive high quality grapes that with careful nurturing create wines of outstanding varietal character, complexity and balance.

Montrose was established in 1974 by Carlo Salteri and Franco Belgiorno-Nettis, Italian engineers with a love of fine wine. The Italian connection continued with the appointment of Italian born and trained winemaker Carlo Corino in 1976.

The Wine

Harvested at 13.5 degree baum, crushed to a combination of small open and closed fermenters and regularly plunged over a moderately cool 12 day fermentation. Gently pressed to French oak hogsheads (new to 3 year old) to undergo malolactic fermentation and matured for 14 months.

The colour is dark and dense. A hint of spice is apparent and warm on the palate. The drop has a savoury edge with a concentrated and ample finish.

''Good colour, quite dense and dark with a touch of spice, warm on the palate, with a light savoury edge to the firm and ample finish.''- James Halliday 2009

''While the label design is new, and the Robert Oatley Vineyards ownership likewise, the Black Shiraz of Montrose is a wine that has excelled over the years, and this is no exception. There is an abundance of red and black fruits on the supple medium-bodied palate, the flavours framed by perfectly integrated oak and fine-grained tannins.''-James Halliday

Tasting Note: Bold cherries and spicy fruit flavours are immediately apparent. The finish is smooth and balanced.
