More Information

"A new wine here, replacing the old Nouveau which contained Touriga and other things. Alex Head suggests that Monte is a great grape for the Barossa Valley – the honey badger of grape varieties. Raised in old foudre. Very purple, hazelnut, touch of meat and spice, boysenberry, blueberry. Medium-bodied, dry dusty firm tannin, savoury but with a core of jubey fruit. Some of the grapes character, but tastes regional too. Good drinking here, though I feel it will be better again with a little more time to settle into bottle. "  Rated : 91 Points Winefront.com.au

Where this wine comes from - Barossa Valley

The Barossa Valley is Australia’s best-known wine region and there’s a good reason why. The wines certainly live up to their international reputation, particularly Barossa Shiraz. With long, warm summers, the region produces full-bodied styles with power and panache. The reds are rich and luscious in their youth with dark-berried flavours, fruit intensity and fine-grained tannins, which mature gracefully with time in the cellar. But there’s more to the region than Shiraz. Grenache and Mourvèdre do more than play a supporting role in GSM blends, they’re standing on their own two feet as single varietal wines. And with a new school of winemakers at the helm, the region is in good hands for a long and healthy future.
