The team at Montalto were excited to see our Single Vineyard Pinot Noirs have shone through amongst a tasting report of 2,700+ wines – this follows an incredible year on the 2018 Australian Wine Circuit, capturing 10 trophies and 15 gold medals.
Single Vineyard Merricks Block Pinot Noir 2017, & Single Vineyard Tuerong Block 2017 both awarded 96 points in a report that only rated 19 Pinot Noirs 96+.
In this report as well, our new release Montalto Pennon Hill Pinot Noir 2018 was awarded 94 points ~ a fantastic score for a Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir and reaffirms this wine’s incredible quality and great value.
