Kirrihill Mount Lofty Montepulciano 2012

One of a handful of producers that have brought Montepulciano onto the market (you may also want to check out Waywood Wines and By Jingo! if you're particularly fond of the variety).

A delightful mix of savour imbued with a little sweet: touches of tobacco, with a little twiggy-note against a little sweeter element of cherry and red berry fruit.

On the palate it shows itself as a juicy little beast - a little dusty tannin, a mix of spice that creates an attractive drinking proposition. Again we see a little fruit here, more on the black spectrum with a little black cherry and black berry. Good finish, it is the middle movement that wins it for me. 90
