HEATHCOTE | Mixed Half Dozen | Pink + White
This is our fun bundle! Enjoy refreshing whites with stone fruit and citrus flavours, two different styles of rosé, a light and fruity Moscato and of course a bottle of Prosecco to provide the fizz..
Montevecchio 2018 Prosecco: The Chalmers family imported Prosecco into Australia in 1998. At the time it was not that well known outside the Veneto, where the Chalmers girls enjoyed a glass or three in their time living there. Since then it has become a household name all over the world, production in Australia has boomed and we are now making some excellent Prosecco wines right across the country. Montevecchio Prosecco is grown in the Chalmers family’s home region of the Murray Darling. It is crisp with delicate florals and green apple freshness – everything you want in a fun glass of fizz.
Tellurian 2017 Viogner: Well suited to the growing conditions in Heathcote, Tellurian Viognier is made in a medium to full bodied style with expressive floral and stone fruit aromatics and round, plush texture. Picked just late enough in the season to show the expressive flavour of this variety, and at the optimal time to maintain freshness and a clean finish.
Munari 2019 Vermentino: Produced with fruit sourced from the Chalmers Vineyards on the Mt Camel range, this wine displays fresh citrus aromas, lemon & grapefruit flavours, good minerality and fresh acidity.
Chalmers 2018 Rosato: Who doesn’t love rosé? The Chalmers Rosato is made from mostly Aglianico with a splash of Nero d’Avola and Sagrantino. All three varieties are growing on the prized top block at the Heathcote vineyard which is a complex rocky site with green basalt, ironstone, dolerite and fractured limestone. The block gives a distinct elegance and prettiness to the red varieties grown there, even though these varieties are usually more muscular. The Aglianico portion is fermented in old barriques and the other two are co-fermented in stainless steel to retain freshness. The end result is a serious yet slurpable pale, dry and textural rose.
Sanguine Estate 2019 Rose: Very pretty salmon hue. Aromas of Ripe apple and strawberry with a savoury complexity derived from natural fermentation in old oak.A soft fruity palate with an elegant dry finish.
Montevecchio 2018 Moscato: Montevecchio Moscato is made from 100% moscato giallo, a superior moscato selection imported by Chalmers from northern Italy.This attractive refreshing, light and fruity wine has just a hint of spritz, allowing the bright sherbet, elderflower and honeysuckle flavours of the moscato giallo grape to take centre stage. It balances sweetness, acidity and alcohol perfectly in a style reminiscent of the great wines of Asti.
