Winemaker's Notes

Vineyard - Single Vineyard wine from the Home Block in Upper Moutere.

Soil -  Moutere clay

Vintage Conditions - Although growing conditions were less than ideal  with sporadic rain over vintage, our low crop levels and diligent vineyard husbandry produced our Montepulciano with great flavour and finesse.

Harvest Date - April 2018

Fermentation / Maturation - Initial fermentation in pen fermenters with hand plunging then 100% oak barrel maturation in older French and American Barrels.

Tasting Note - Kahurangi Montepulciano 2018 is a beautiful example of this noble Italian classic. Deep ruby-purple in colour,  with robust aromas of wild forest berries and oregano overlying subtle cocoa notes. Spicy blackcurrent and plum flavours on the palate, a well weighted wine with good density and smooth texture, backed by fine/firm tannins.
