JUNE AT MONTALTO 2024

There’s plenty happening this June – find us at Winter Wine Weekend next week and our Barrel Hall Wine Sale & Sausage Sizzle (at Tucks - just next door to Montalto!) on Sunday 9th June; our much-loved Pork & Pinot Festival is on again on Sunday 30th June; our first ever EOFY wine sale (details coming soon!); and Saturday nights in The Restaurant are back from tonight, Saturday 1st June. And our 2023 Pennon Hill reds will released any minute – best enjoyed around a fireplace.  

Cheers,

 

 

Our 2022 Montalto Syrah hails exclusively from our warmer Tuerong vineyards. Mulberry, blackberry, blueberry and even raspberries mesh with olive tapenade, smoked charcuterie, and nuances of spice by way of peppercorn and clove. There’s a faint whiff of bay leaf and rosemary for good measure. Upfront, a core of quenching blue and red fruit, together with Black-forest cake, black cherry, and plum pudding, framed by silken fine tannins finishing with a savoury and chalky twist"

A compelling wine that balances a powerful structure with polish, brightness and finesse. The presence of this wine is immediately evident through the deep crimson colour with purple hues. The complex nose shows red and black cherry, blood orange chinotto and cherry cola combining with earthy notes, bramble and tea leaf. On the palate the wine is sweet fruited up front full of cherry flesh, raspberry and blood orange. The fruit then quickly makes way for a textural and savoury wine, the assertive tannin from the whole bunch component in perfect balance with the velvet quality of the silky skin tannin. A wine as much about feel as it is about flavour.”

Classically red-fruited, raspberry, cherry, and cranberry combine with blood orange, rose petal, spice, earth, pink peppercorn, fresh herbs, forest floor, and some oak-inspired coffee grind notes, making for a wonderfully aromatic and complex aroma profile. A core of quenching juicy red fruit gives way to a savoury line showing just a subtle character of cured meat or charcuterie. There’s minerality in this wine too and a fine polished tannin, which carries the length of the palate. Moreish acidity gives purpose, brightness, and a long expressive finish.”

“As the days shorten and frosty mornings begin, our delicate produce of salad leaves, radishes and baby carrots are safely tucked away in our warm polytunnels. Jerusalem artichokes - or Sunchokes - are being unearthed and are featured on both The Piazza and The Restaurant menus as a mild summer and growing season has made for beautifully large and flavoursome tubers. Our larder is heaving with stored pumpkins, apples and pears while the last of the wild pine mushrooms are still plentiful but as the soil gets colder, the season will end soon so be quick to enjoy these wild treats while they last.”

Julie Bennett, Produce Manager
