The previous vintage of this wine scooped the awards table, with nods from all directions including Gourmet Traveller Victorian Chardonnay of the Year 2017 to an impressive 97 points from James Halliday.
This vintage saw a riper season, resulting in a slight shift towards of stone fruit. The usual citrus focus (lime, lemon, tangerine, grapefruit) is still evident together with the mineral, white florals and sulphide elements typical of the Estate Chardonnay.
The influence of French oak adds to the richness and mouthfeel of the wine. Tangy, natural acidity lends line and length to the palate. The addition of the aged lees brings further complexity by way of crème brûlée and brioche, whilst adding texture and mouthfeel.

A truly outstanding pinot noir, our multi-award winning Montalto Estate Pinot Noir is great to drink now or will cellar well for 5-10 years. Bright red fruits including cherry and red currants combine with darker fruit just beneath the surface, while blood orange merges with floral notes, spice, earth, dried herbs and forest floor.
A spectacular example of a Mornington Peninsula pinot noir.

Montalto Estate Cuvee One 2014 has a riper profile showing generous mouthfeel and richness with a darker, more golden colour profile. Lots of creamy autolysis mixed with toast and honey, citrus and stone fruit, together with some marzipan flavours. A sure crowd pleaser.
A beautiful example of a cool climate riseling, this wine is light and pretty.
Aromatic notes of white flowers, lime and mandarin combine with a pleasing touch of sherbet and talc.
The palate is fine and focused, with a tangy freshness that also reveals some lovely textural qualities.
All too easy drinking.
