So, SO impressive! I tasted a few Montepulciano releases on my recent trip to Mudgee and this release from Robert Stein was way in front. What a belter!

After Five Wine Co Montepulciano 2021

Staining depth. A wine that really digs its claws in, this a very tidy expression of Montepulciano from the southern Barossa.

After Five Wine Co Serata 2019


The blending of unlikely bedfellows Shiraz, Montepulciano and Aglianico (50/29/21) has delivered an absolute treat. A generous wine with a stunning savoury edge, be sure to decant to see it at its best.

Colours of the South Rosso 2020


A barbecue or roast night special. Generous with soft spices, this is a terrific drink.

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.

Angullong Fossil Hill Montepulciano 2021


What a great drink this is. It's rich, generous and loaded with interest. Monte Australian style smashing the brief.

Angullong Crossing Reserve Harriet 2019


All the Italians swing into action here - Sangiovese, Sagrantino and Montepulciano come together in a blend that I can't help but keep going back for.

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.

Gerler Rej Montepulciano Mataro 2019


Blends fascinate me. The exploration is exciting, outrageous and fascinating all at the same time. Here are two varieties singing a duet together - a duet I wouldn't have contemplated.

Langmeil Massimo Montepulciano Primitivo 2019

A big, sturdy blend coming at you from the Barossa's Langmeil Estate. Two varieties I've never seen together, but it works.

If Montepulciano is your thing, make a bee line to this. A stunning wine from Matt Wenk that just slides down with absolute ease.
