Montalto Estate Shiraz 2014

First 'Estate' Shiraz for Montalto: a Single vineyard wine from 'Teurong', it's warmest site. One hundred dozen made. 

Black Cherry and Plummy depths, mulberry, with cracked pepper seasoning. 

Lots going on: persistent pepper and general spice hints; tannin fine and persistent. There's meat and grilled nuts - just something new at each turn. 

Length - and some - continuing a fine run of form for Montalto and the winemaking team under Simon Black. 93 

Tasted on: Sunday 12th June
