Pale to medium straw in colour with green hues. Primary fruit aromas of minerals, white flowers, lime juice and mandarin combine with a touch of sherbet, talc and a nuance of Indian spices.The palate is fine and focused, with a tangy freshness and a long and expressive aftertaste with plenty of minerality. The 2015 has plenty of intensity, and will age well for the next 5-8 years.

Range

The Montalto range is a selection of the best parcels of fruit from our vineyards. The wines typically come from our oldest vines and our best sites. They have more fruit intensity and complexity and for this reason receive more new oak, usually 40%. For the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir the grapevine clones are an important quality parameter. The Chardonnay clone ‘P58’ is our preferred clone because it yields smaller bunches and berries and greater fruit intensity. For Pinot we like ‘MV6’ from the warm sites for its smaller bunches and intensely dark fruit and from the cooler sites ‘114, 115 and D5V12’ for the spice, perfume and tannin structure.
