Dr Plonk The Good Doctor's Antidote Montepulciano 2021


The entry-level FU Manchu Montepulciano is a dangerously slurpable beast, but this Good Doctor's Antidote from Dr Plonk just takes things to another level. Is it the best Australian Montepulciano I've tasted? All signs point to yes!

FU Manchu Montepulciano 2022


If Montepulciano translates to "yummo" then the crew at FU Manchu and Dr Plonk have nailed the brief. Yikes! This is a great slurp.

Grandis Wines Earthed Montepulciano 2020


There is a lot to like about the shape and flow of this wine. Montepulciano from the Hunter Valley, it is infused with organic Australian Ginseng as an alternative preservative - a unique approach. This is a wine worth checking out.

FU Manchu Montepulciano 2021


A butcher's dreamboat, fistfuls of dark fruits flow with ease. Fine spices and a dash of pepper, there is an incredible moreishness that flows.

d'Arenberg The Hunjee Heartstring Montepulciano 2018

This wine, along with the new release Danger Mouse Nero d'Avola, represent d'Arenberg's ongoing program of alternate grape variety plantings in the McLaren Vale wine region. “These varieties are suited to warmer climate conditions, ripening significantly later than some of the other traditional grape varieties,” said d’Arenberg Chief Winemaker Chester Osborn. “With the changing climate, we are working with varieties that may one day replace the traditional ones planted in the region like Shiraz, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon. They are more resistant to drought and heat stress. Montepulciano and Mencia in particular are my two favourite contenders to replace Shiraz in the future.”

Only 250 dozen were produced from this limited edition release. Named after a rogue group of sheep which snuck into the vineyard, "The Mob" came close to destroying it. Three years later the first crop produced this impressive wine.
