Syrah is a versatile grape variety famed for producing rich, full-bodied reds with a hint of spice. Its versatility means it can be blended to create an exquisite selection of wines suited to a wide range of tastes and occasions. The flavours and textures found in a Syrah are distinguished by the terroirs in which the grape has been grown and by the vinification process employed. Syrah wines vary in taste, but an authentic and truly exceptional Syrah delivers flavours of dark fruit, such as black cherry and plum, intricately accompanied with spicy notes, like black pepper, and augmented with a savoury finish.
Montalto’s Simon Black’s wine-making expertise uniquely qualifies him to create luscious and quenching Mornington Peninsula reds, building on perfection year after year. Using elegantly blended combinations of intensely aromatic red and blue fruits such as raspberries, mulberries and blueberries, Montalto deepens the complexity of Syrah by adding expressive earthy notes, spices and charcuterie.
