Calculate delivery fee
Full-flavored meats such as roasted lamb, beef short ribs or even spice-rubbed or barbequed chicken, aged hard cheeses.
Matured in French oak.
Bright violet and rich red roll around the glass opaque, vibrant, and alive.
Aromas of beef stock and crushed mint.
Hints of cinnamon spice right through a palate that graduates to both sweet tobacco and the cigar-box that held it; the finish lingers with vanilla straight from the pod. Only serious structure can contain this kitchen of flavour and it does so spectacularly. Firm where it should be, subtle when needed. Intense throughout.
Whilst still a travelling consultant winemaker, on his list of favourite wine regions to visit and work was central and southern Italy. It was there that his love of Montepulciano began, and those memories have inspired him to make this Aussie version from fruit grown in the Adelaide Hills. Montepulciano is the name of both a grape variety and a town in Tuscany, Italy, which causes confusion as the two are not actually connected in any way. All Mr. Riggs knows is it's a great wine!
