Hastwell and Lightfoot Montepulciano 2017
Montepulciano from McLaren Vale here. The Vale is quite the Mediterranean variety Mecca of sorts -at least for the warmer climate regions of Australia.
The back label says Wine made for eating. Speaking for its roots, that's the Italian way, isn't it?
There's an earthy and minerally feel to the wine. Dark in appearance with mulberries and blueberries plus unmistakable oregano. Powdery and mouth sapping tannins call for plates of bolognese and ragu. Yep, it's made for eating.
Drink now to five years.
Region: McLaren Vale
