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 2019 Bianco : Montevecchio Bianco is a co-fermented field blend made from Vermentino, Pecorino, Ribolla Gialla, Falanghina, Moscato Giallo & Fiano.Fragrant, fleshy and fruity, this wine shows notes of Passion flower, grapefruit and fresh almonds. It is crisp yet giving on the palate with a clean dry, chalky finish. Enjoy extra chilled with some a summer spread.
Tellurian 2018 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 2020 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.
