Montevecchio Moscato 2017

Montevecchio Moscato 2018

Heathcote, Victoria   |    750ml   |    5.5%
The impressive Monteveccho range of wines come from the meticulously tended Chalmers vineyard in Heathcote. The Montevecchio wines are made by the highly skilled Sandro Mosele whose minimal intervention style allows the varieties and terroir to shine through in these food friendly wines.

This 2018 Montevecchio Moscato is a local Australian example of rare quality; made from 100% moscato giallo - a superior moscato selection imported from northern Italy by the Chalmers family. This attractive refreshing, light and fruity wine has just a hint of spritz, allowing the bright sherbet, elderflower and honeysuckle flavours of the moscato giallo grape to take centre stage. It balances sweetness, acidity and alcohol perfectly in a style reminiscent of the great wines of Asti.

Review of the 2017 vintage included below;

"If it wasn't for the 5.5% alcohol, this would be dangerously addictive. With a pale yellow colour and a busy cordon of bubbles, its fresh muscat grape aroma leaps out of the glass. The effervescence is creamy-soft and the sweetness is not overdone. Lovely. 92 Points" - Huon Hooke, Gourmet Traveller WINE.

From the meticulously tended Chalmers Heathcote vineyard comes the Montevecchio range of wines. The site is perfectly situated on the east facing slope of the Mt Camel Range, comprised of the famous red earth of the region. The twenty hectare vineyard has been planted to thirteen different varieties, predominantly Italian. The name Montevecchio translates literally as ‘old mountain’ referring to the ancient Cambrian origins of these soils.

The Chalmers’ years of experience in viticulture, and their passion for Italian varieties is matched by the care and expertise of winemaker Sandro Mosele. Sandro's minimal intervention style allows the varieties and terroir to shine through in these food friendly wines.
